Letter to House and Senate Armed Services Committees

November 15, 2012

Excerpt: We write to express our strong opposition to certain provisions relating to the Department of Energy’s nuclear defense and related programs in the House-passed national defense authorization bill.  We believe these provisions, if enacted into law, would decrease accountability to the President, through the Secretary of Energy, for the safety, security, and management of the nuclear weapons complex, and would reduce essential oversight of these facilities. The provisions would undermine Cabinet-level management of the operations and the safety and security of the nuclear weapons complex and related nuclear programs that are an integral part of the Department of Energy.
