David Hobson (R-Ohio), and Linton Brooks, undersecretary of energy for nuclear security, U.S. Department of Energy. Panel discussions will focus on topics such as the need for earth-penetrating nuclear weapons, the role of nuclear weapons in U.S. foreign policy, and the Stockpile Stewardship Program, a DOE effort to safely maintain the nation's nuclear arsenal and to use simulated tests to measure its reliability.
