- Tennessee Senators Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Bill Hagerty (R-TN) have introduced a bill in the U.S. Senate that would establish more oversight and increased transparency from the work of the World Health Organization (WHO).
- “The World Health Organization is a puppet for the Chinese Communist Party. Their mismanagement of the COVID-19 pandemic made it abundantly clear they should never have a say over America’s response to any crisis,” Blackburn said in a statement.
- The bill, titled, “No WHO Pandemic Preparedness Treaty Without Senate Approval Act,” would require any convention or agreement resulting from the work of the WHO’s intergovernmental negotiating body be deemed a treaty, therefore requiring the advice and consent of a supermajority of the Senate.
