  • Finally, Some Good News Out of Congress

    The Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted 19-2 in favor of the U.S.-India civil nuclear cooperation agreement. Doubly impressive the committee adopted the agreement without a controversial proposal that would give Congress more influence over future deals.

    Heritage analyst Lisa Curtis underscored the importance of final passage of the agreement earlier this month:

    The U.S. has the tools it requires to both remain faithful to its Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty obligations and to bring India into the nonproliferation mainstream. If this historic nuclear deal is finalized, it will contribute to strengthening global nonproliferation by making New Delhi a stakeholder in a system seeking to adapt itself to the most serious proliferation threats of the 21st century. There is no good reason to delay this landmark initiative any longer.
