American Nuclear Society member dues are not used for contributions to political parties or candidates or for independent expenditures on behalf of parties or candidates. Less than 1/10 of 1.0% (or 0.1%) of dues money goes to lobbying efforts. In the case of someone at the $175 dues level, this would be 17.5 cents.
