I don't know why I can't see this image, using Chrome I can. I will try to find original source. Explains what Title III Sec. 301 is.
Sec. 1238. Plan to respond in case of Russian noncompliance with the New START Treaty.
Oops, can’t see it with Chrome either.
TITLE III - OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE
Subtitle A - Authorization of Appropriations
Sec.301 Authorization of Appropriations
Funds are here by to be appropriated for the use of the Armed Forces and other activities and agencies of the Department of Defense for expenses, not otherwise provided for, for operations and maintenance, as specified in the funding table in section 4301.
It looks as if something like this is done almost every year. The wording might be different, but they came out while Obama was President.
Remind me of what that is, if you will.
The House bill contained a provision (sec. 1240) that would re- quire the President to submit a report to Congress including options in response to a possible failure by the Russian Federation to comply with the New START Treaty by the deadline of February 5, 2018, as well as an assessment of whether such a failure would constitute material breach of the treaty.
I saw it copied on another site and no one knew what it meant.
It’s about what happens if the Russians don’t comply with the new START treaty.
Thanks to everyone for explanations.
I don’t understand gov or legal documents unless explained in simple layman terms. Maybe even grade school terms. So I appreciate any and all explanations.
