On arms control, Vice President Gore is recognized as an expert
because of his mastery of the intricacies of these issues. In 1982 he
introduced a landmark comprehensive arms control plan that later
became one of the central features of the U.S. negotiating position in
the START talks; his pioneering proposal to eliminate land-based,
multiple-warhead missiles on both sides was adopted between the United
States and Russia. In addition, Gore was the author of legislation
aimed at stopping the proliferation of nuclear missile technology to
Third World countries.
