The Ground-Based Midcourse Defense program (GMD)-the only system that can protect the US from the threat of ICBM-delivered nuclear weapons, was developed right here in Alabama, and the GMD must be fully funded and developed to ensure our national security.
The legislation, entitled the North Korean Enablers Accountability Act was introduced by Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO), Chairman of the Subcommittee on East Asia, the Pacific, and International Cybersecurity.
