Dear Mrs. Frownfelter:
Thank you for contacting me with your support for H.R. 193, the American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017. It is an honor to serve the people of Northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula, and I appreciate your thoughts on this important matter.

As you may know, on January 3, 2017, Representative Mike Rogers (AL-3) introduced H.R. 193. This legislation requires the president to terminate U.S. membership in the United Nations, prohibits the U.S. from contributing funds to U.N. military operations, and invalidates diplomatic immunity for U.N. officials in the United States. H.R. 193 has been referred to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs; however, there has been no further action on this bill to date. While I am not a member of this committee, I will be sure to keep your thoughts in mind should this bill come before the House for a vote.

Again, thank you for contacting me to share your support for H.R. 193, the American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017. It is an honor to represent you in the U.S. House of Representatives, and I am here to help in any way possible. Please do not hesitate to call if I may ever be of service. You can also visit my website at http://bergman.house.gov to learn more about the many services with which my office is happy to assist. I look forward to hearing from you again soon.
Kind regards,
