Murkowski to Support New START

Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) “announced today that she will vote to approve ratification of a nuclear arms treaty with Russia, known as New START,” according to a press release from her office.

“After much study and discussion, I have decided to support ratification of the New START treaty, viewing it as a modest step forward in our efforts to reduce the risk of nuclear war. For the United States, it maintains our strategic or long range nuclear weapons capability, while also allowing the U.S. to return to on-the-ground verification of Russia’s nuclear stockpile.”

The above is only an excerpt of her full statement.
