Cramer Expresses Concerns About Nuclear Weapon Studies

Posted: Updated:

As you probably know, North Dakota is well stocked with nuclear weapons. Fortunately, the U.S. military hasn't launched any of those Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles.

There are reports that the Pentagon wants the Air Force to move forward with studies on the impact of nuclear weapons on the environment.

And that's raised concern among lawmakers, including North Dakota Representative Kevin Cramer.

Cramer says the study is the first step towards disarming the nation's ICBM fleet. And he says such studies are illegal because of a provision in a recently passed law.

"The reality is that every day that those missile's are in the ground they're holding the rest of the nuclear world at bay. So, they're very important to the nation and the worlds defense," says Cramer.

Cramer and others have sent a letter to the Department of Defense and plan to follow up next week if they don't receive a response.
