Democrats and Republicans in the House of Representatives are proposing legislation that would overhaul the U.N. human rights council and allow it to create a new task force to study and address dog abuse and neglect.
The House bill would require the council to conduct a review of all countries that abuse dogs and establish new guidelines for dog owners.
The council would also be required to provide an annual report to the U,S.
House lawmakers are proposing that the UN’s human rights commissioner be replaced by a human rights ambassador.
The U.K. and the U States have had a special envoy on animal rights since 1999.
The U.M.C.D.S.-OAS has been responsible for overseeing the council since 2002.
The task force would have to be staffed by three members from each country.
It would include representatives from the UNAIDS and the European Union, as well as representatives from each of the UAP countries, which includes countries in South America, Central America and the Middle East.
The council’s mandate would include improving the lives of vulnerable populations, improving the protection of vulnerable children and vulnerable groups, and promoting fair and equitable treatment of animals.
In recent years, the council has become a hub for international and regional animal advocacy and has come under fire from animal rights groups for its lack of transparency and accountability.
Last year, the UANU said the council’s chief human rights official, Stephen Stott, is responsible for the councils handling of abuses by the animals, including the killing of dogs by human hands, and that the council “is not doing enough to prevent cruelty against animals in its care.”
The UNAIDs said it was disappointed that the human rights committee has not been consulted, but that “all the members have their own concerns and the issue of animal abuse must be taken into account.”
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee, meanwhile, will consider the House bill this week.
The panel has jurisdiction over the UU, the OAS, the European Commission, the World Bank, and other organizations.
