PEACE POLICY. INITIATIVE STATUTE. Compels the Governor, on behalf of the People of the State of California, to urge the President of the United States and leaders of Congress, in writing, to: adopt foreign policies which end arms sales and military training to nations that abuse human rights; stop funding for nuclear weapons and reallocate those funds toward cooperative agreements to secure, reduce and dismantle nuclear, chemical and biological weapons; renounce a policy of pre-emptive attacks against any nation; and await declaration of war by the House of Representatives, as required by the United States Constitution, before initiating armed conflict with a sovereign nation. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: This measure would require only written communication by the Governor to federal government officials. The measure therefore would have no fiscal effect.
