Dahm files resolution condemning Biden stance on U.S. public health and the World Health Organization

Sen. Nathan Dahm, R-Broken Arrow, filed Senate Concurrent Resolution 33 Wednesday condemning President Biden’s comment that he’d like to give the World Health Organization (WHO) more power to regulate the United States’ public health policy.

“Per the United States Constitution, the U.S. Senate must ratify all treaties, and the presidency has no authority to enter into an agreement or policy to circumvent this Constitutional requirement,” Dahm said. “The reports that this administration is contemplating giving up American and Oklahoman sovereignty to a foreign and international organization – especially an organization controlled by the Chinese communists – are very troubling, and I want our citizens to know that I vehemently oppose such a move.”

The resolution affirms that if this policy were in place and not properly ratified as a treaty by the U.S. Senate that it would be null and void in the state.

SCR 33 is now available to be heard by the Senate and House. Rep. Sean Roberts, R-Hominy, is the House principal author.
