👍🏻Senate Bill S.985 AKA the Allied Burden Sharing Report Act of 2019👍🏻 I’m in support and strongly recommend the passage of theSenate Bill S.985 AKA the Allied Burden Sharing Report Act of 2019 would direct the Dept. of Defense (DOD) to submit an annual report to Congress describing:
1) U.S. allies’ annual defense spending, their contributions to military or stability operations in which the U.S. participates, and limitations they place on their military contributions’ use; and
2) actions taken by the U.S. or other countries to minimize limitations on allies’ contributions.
U.S. contributions to mutually beneficial security efforts should be matched by our allies. Keeping track of our allies’ defense spending and contributions to joint operations will help Congress ensure that the U.S. is not taken advantage of by allies who fail to pay their fair share of our mutual defense.
