New START Nuclear Arms Treaty (Roll Call 298)
The Senate voted to ratify a
New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) with Russia. ACU opposed this treaty
for its ambiguity regarding missile defense and other matters of substance without legal
understandings to the contrary. ACU also opposed its adoption by a lame-duck session
of Congress without proper consideration and debate. Nevertheless, on December 22,
2010, the resolution of ratification was adopted by a vote of 71-26.
