American Bar Association Calls for CTBT Approval

The American Bar Association's House of Delegates announced on August 10 that it "urges the United States to ratify the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty."

The resolution passed the 561-member body by a unanimous voice vote, and no members spoke in opposition to the treaty.

Similarly, the ABA House of Delegations passed a resolution in 1994 to call for the U.S. government to curb the spread of nuclear weapons through measures like a comprehensive test ban and further support and continuation of the NPT.
