read the full transcript of his nuclear weapons remarks
FCNL and other national faith organizations requested that senators ask Mr. Tillerson about his stance on nuclear weapons during his nomination hearing for the position of Secretary of State. Senators Shaheen and Markey did ask Mr. Tillerson about his stance on nuclear issues.
In preparation for the confirmation hearings for the nomination of Rex Tillerson to serve as the next
Secretary of State, we write to express the concerns of our non‐partisan, 74‐year‐old Quaker lobby in
the public interest. We are particularly eager to understand how Mr. Tillerson envisions his role as the
leading spokesperson and principal voice on foreign policy for our country.

Over the next 30 years, the United States is likely to spend one trillion dollars on the U.S. nuclear arsenal. Approximately one third of that expense will be on the design and construction of unnecessary new nuclear weapons.
FCNL's multi-issue advocacy connects Quaker testimonies with legislation in the U.S. Congress and the administration.
