Hearing on Anti-UN Bill Moved to Future Date
House Bill 1412 was pulled from the agenda of the States’ Rights Committee this afternoon. A note on the Oklahoma House of Representatives website stated: “HB1412 … will be heard at a later meeting.”
Then, shortly before the 3pm start time of the committee meeting, an announcement was made that the meeting was cancelled. It will be re-scheduled for a future date.
House Bill 1412 is Rep. Sally Kern’s proposed new law to restrict public commerce with the United Nations and with an ill-defined group of non-governmental organizations. By prohibiting state and local government agencies from acquiring knowledge resources from the United Nations, House Bill 1412 would strike a harmful blow against students, teachers and researchers in our state.
We urge the members and friends of the United Nations Association to contact the members of the States’ Rights Committee to express your opposition to House Bill 1412. (A list of members appears below).
Time after time, public opinion polls have shown that Americans appreciate the contributions of the United Nations to the peace and security of our world.
The members of the United Nations Association will continue to defend the intellectual freedom that is currently enjoyed by the people of our state. And we will continue to promote positive American leadership in the United Nations. A total of four anti-UN measures are pending in the State Legislature this year.
