Setting Priorities for Nuclear Modernization

The Center for American Progress will host an important and timely discussion to mark the release of its report on how the Obama administration and Congress can modernize the nation’s nuclear arsenal within its existing budget constraints—without undermining its moral boundaries in the battle against nuclear proliferation and its conventional capabilities to confront our current national security challenges.

In conjunction with the report, CAP will release a web-based interactive that will allow each user to learn about the different nuclear capabilities of the United States and gives them the ability to build their own recommendation.
