Congressional Nuclear Security Working Group to Hold Briefing on Upcoming NPR on August 31st

On Thursday, August 31 from 2:30-3:30 the Congressional Nuclear Security Working Group will be holding a briefing on the upcoming Nuclear Posture Review. The briefing will be held in Rayburn 2362-B.

In January President Trump ordered a review of the U.S. nuclear posture. The on-going Nuclear Posture Review will establish U.S. nuclear policy, strategy, capabilities, and force structure for the next 5-10 years. To discuss the NPR process, previous reviews, and what we can expect from this iteration, the Working Group has organized a briefing and discussion with nuclear policy experts Dr. Susan Koch (National Defense University, former NSC, DOD, DOS) and Col. Guy Roberts (USMC, Ret., nominee for Assistant Secretary of Defense for Nuclear, Chemical and Biological Defense Programs).

Please RSVP to Nate Sans at nathaniel.sans@mail.house.gov.

The Congressional Nuclear Security Working Group is a bipartisan caucus in the United States Congress dedicated to facilitating awareness and engagement on the urgent threats posed by the potential for nuclear proliferation and nuclear terrorism.  Co-chaired by Congressman Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE) and Congressman Peter Visclosky (D-IN), the Working Group’s goals include strengthening nuclear safeguards, securing fissile material, and preventing the misuse of sensitive nuclear materials and technologies.
