SACRAMENTO — Assemblywoman Cecilia Aguiar-Curry has received the Women’s Legislators Lobby Pacesetter Award in recognition of her bold leadership in carrying Assembly Joint Resolution 30, “Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act” through the California Legislature.

The resolution called on Congress to pass H.R. 669, authored by California Representative Ted Lieu, D-Los Angeles County, to prohibit the President from unilaterally authorizing the deployment of nuclear weapons in an offensive attack without specific authorization from Congress.

“I am honored to receive this award and represent the 4th Assembly District on a national scale,” said Aguiar-Curry, who is a Democrat from Winters. “I admire the work women leaders are doing in our country, and the role WiLL members are playing in bringing attention to critical issues like national security and the use of weapons of mass destruction.”
