Ros-Lehtinen Letter to Secretary Tauscher on the Gold Standard

Congresswoman Ros-Lehtinen's wrote a letter opposing the administration's new policy because it shuns the "Gold Standard" approach by retracting the need for all countries engaging in nuclear cooperation agreements with the U.S. to forgo acquiring enrichment and reprocessing (ENR) capabilities. Furthermore, she argues that this new policy will undermine the U.S.'s global nonproliferation efforts because when it comes to ENR, there is no sharp division between military and civilian programs.
