Enzi and Others Want OMB to Give Accounting of UN Contributions

Every year, the federal government gives billions of dollars to the United Nations (UN) without having a full accounting of the contributions to the international body. U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., joined Senator Mike Lee, R-Utah, and others recently in an effort to require the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to annually report contributions to the UN from every federal agency, including all non-monetary gifts.

Enzi says “it’s disturbing that no one, including our ambassador to the United Nations, knows exactly how much money we send the UN every year.”  Enzi adds ” with a national debt exceeding  $17 trillion, we need to be able to account for every dime we spend, including what we send to the UN.”

Enzi said reports from the State Department on UN spending exist now, but are limited to just the State Department’s spending. The senators’ bill, S.978, would require OMB to look across all agencies and report its findings annually.
