its vote by December 31;
WHEREAS as a permanent member of the UN Security Council and in fulfillment
of its treaty obligations as a signatory to the UN Charter, the United States
should support the UN according to its dues obligations under the UN Charter;

currently stalled in the United States Congress;

to urge the United States to pay its obligations to the UN promptly, in full,
