In the News: Matt Bunn, Nick Roth and William Tobey- U.S. Commitment to Preventing Nuclear Terrorism Waning

FMWG Steering Committee Member Matt Bunn, along with Nikolas Roth and William Tobey argue the U.S. government is failing to prioritize nuclear security, despite the administration’s rhetoric. The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), “the agency primarily responsible for working with other countries to reduce nuclear terrorism risks, wants to reduce spending for nuclear security programs by $115 million in 2019, a 26 percent reduction from last year.”  The authors argue Congress should be holding hearings and working to identify the most vulnerable areas.
