Congressman Daines Speaks on ICBM's and Their Status

Posted: Updated:

Congressman Steve Daines today joining Representatives Cynthia Lummus (R-WY) and Kevin Cramer (R-ND) in introducing an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act today.

The amendment, which passed through the House today, requires the department of defense to maintain the 450 ICBM Silos in a warm status, ensuring that our nation's nuclear force remains flexible, functional and responsive.

The congressman had this to say on the amendment, "Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana is home to 150 of our nation's intercontinental ballistic missiles, which are a vital component of our nuclear deterrence strategy to keep the American people safe from mankind's most dangerous threat...For several decades, this peace through strength policy has worked, which is why I believe it would be deeply unwise to degrade the very infrastructure which implements our effective policy for peace."
