As a member of the Georgia State Senate, I have joined with women colleagues in both chambers to introduce resolutions urging Congress to establish protocols for the use of nuclear weapons. These resolutions make clear that the President does not have sole authority to order a first-strike nuclear attack on another nation without Congressional approval. Our efforts are joined by women legislators in eight additional states (Massachusetts, Illinois, California, Iowa, Maryland, Vermont, Minnesota, New Hampshire) who have introduced similar resolutions or sent jointly signed letters to their Congressional delegations.
