HERITAGE ACTION POSITION: NO

Vote Description

The Support for the Sovereignty, Integrity, Democracy, and Economic Stability of Ukraine Act of 2014 (S.2124), contains reforms to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) that are unrelated to Russia\'s aggression toward Ukraine and takeover of Crimea. The changes to the IMF would increase Russia’s power at the IMF and reduce the voice of the U.S.

Heritage Action Position

The IMF reform package would undermine the United States’ power in several ways. The Heritage Foundation explains the reforms would shift more voting power to countries like Russia, China, Brazil, and India, as well as specific emerging-market nations. It would also double the amount of member countries’ national “quota” contributions. “The higher ‘quota’ levels would come from shifting certain special ‘emergency account’ funds over which the United States has had more control.” The so-called “reforms” some lawmakers are now trying to pass are not urgent. As Heritage notes, “there is no reason why the IMF cannot continue lending at current levels pending additional revisions to the reform package.”
