By  | 

WASHINGTON (KY3) A bill introduced to the U.S. House at the beginning of the January is getting some attention.

It is known as the "American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017."

The bill would repeal the "United Nations Participation Act of 1945," which was entered into after World War Two.

The new bill would eliminate any U.S. commitment to disaster relief or humanitarian aid to U.N. members.

The U.S. would also cease any peace-keeping operations in cooperation with the U.N.

The bill was proposed by Alabama representative Mike Rogers, and has six co-sponsors-- including Missouri Representative Jason Smith.
