As Under Secretary of State, Tauscher was responsible for successfully closing negotiations on the New START Treaty with Russia in 2010 after months of stalemate. But recently the U.S.-Russian relationship has grown troubled, and the White House canceled a planned one-on-one meeting between President Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin. In light of the current status of the U.S.-Russian relationship, Congresswoman Tauscher will assess the prospects for future arms control agreements between two nations that retain vast nuclear arsenals.
