Pantex  
 
The Pantex nuclear weapons plant outside Amarillo is an important national security asset. The facility is charged with maintaining the safety, security, and reliability of the nation’s nuclear weapons stockpile.  Every single nuclear weapon refurbished or dismantled goes through Pantex. The plant’s workforce is skilled and dedicated, and its management efficient. This is important not just for Pantex and Amarillo, but also for U.S. national security.

Our nuclear weapons must be safe, secure, effective, and reliable. That job falls in large part to Pantex. Therefore, it is vital that Pantex and the rest of the nuclear weapons complex receives full funding for both current operations and future modernization.
