The NJ Assembly voted on Thursday (May 23) on Assembly Resolution 230, which urges the federal government to ratify the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, and pursue other measures to reduce the danger of nuclear war. The Resolution passed by a vote of 56 yes, 3 no, and 15 abstentions. Special thanks to Dr. Zia Mian for spearheading this initiative. 

BE IT RESOLVED by the General Assembly of the State of New Jersey:

  1. This House urges the federal government to spearhead a global effort to prevent nuclear war by renouncing the option of using nuclear weapons in a first strike, ending the President’s sole authority to launch a nuclear attack, taking the nuclear weapons of the United States off hair-trigger alert, canceling the plan to replace its entire nuclear arsenal with enhanced nuclear weapons, and actively pursuing a verifiable agreement among nuclear-armed states to eliminate their nuclear arsenals.
  1. This House urges the President and the Senate of the United States to  ratify the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons
