The Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty may be the biggest issue facing the lame-duck Congress after taxes. And in a key development on that front, Maine Republican Sens. Olympia Snowe (pictured) and Susan Collins have announced their support for the nuclear weapons treaty with Russia, The Hill reports.

Shortly after Snowe’s statement, Collins posted a message on Twitter declaring her support for the treaty.
