Rubio, Colleagues Introduce Legislation to Protect American Sovereignty Against World Health Organization

May 31, 2022 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) introduced the No WHO Pandemic Preparedness Treaty Without Senate Approval Act. The bill would require that any convention or agreement resulting from the work of the World Health Assembly’s intergovernmental negotiating body be deemed a treaty, requiring the advice and consent of the Senate. The legislation comes as the World Health Organization (WHO) pushes for broad new powers under a new “international treaty for pandemic preparedness and response.”
“The WHO is a corrupt organization that is supposed to support international health, but instead it caves to tyrannical regimes and plays politics,” Rubio said. “The constitution is clear – any international treaty requires the advice and consent of the U.S. Senate. I am proud to join my colleagues in ensuring the WHO cannot dictate health policy in America.”
“The WHO, along with our federal health agencies, failed miserably in its response to COVID-19. Its failure should not be rewarded with a new international treaty that would increase its power at the expense of American sovereignty,” Johnson said. “What WHO does need is greater accountability and transparency. This bill makes clear to the Biden Administration that any new WHO pandemic agreement must be deemed a treaty and submitted to the Senate for ratification. The sovereignty of the United States is not negotiable.”
