Detailed Information:
ABOUT PROPOSITION ONE: Successful Grassroots Citizen Action Proposition One won 56% of the vote as DC Initiative 37 on September 14, 1993. As a result of the election, DC's Congresswoman, Eleanor Holmes Norton, proposed a similar law, the "Nuclear Disarmament and Economic Conversion Act" (HR-827 in 1997-98). The bill is a promise by the U.S. government to eliminate all its nuclear weapons if everyone else does: a reasonable idea, relatively risk free. It earmarks the billions of dollars saved annually for converting nuclear and defense industries to peacetime needs. The bill has gained eight co-sponsors, from Alabama, California, Georgia, Maryland, Minnesota, New York.
