A tribute to Senator Edward M. Kennedy
Senate Joint Resolution 163, Nuclear Freeze Amendment, March 10, 1982
Senator Kennedy's strong beliefs concerning nuclear control were evident when he and Senator Mark Hatfield introduced the Nuclear Freeze
Amendment on March 10, 1982. Although the amendment did not pass it paved the way for other landmark nuclear legislation in the Senate.
A year later Senator Kennedy became a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee where he continued to support nuclear arms control.
