A bill has been introduced into Congress that would end U.S. membership in the United Nations, WCNC.com reported on Sunday.

The bill, which is sponsored by Republican Rep. Mike Rogers of Alabama, would also remove U.N. headquarters from the United States, halt American participation in peacekeeping operations, eliminate diplomatic immunity for U.N. officers or employees, and end U.S. involvement in the World Health Organization. It would take effect two years after it passed.

However, experts say that the bill does not have much of a chance of becoming law, Death and Taxes reported.

The bill is separate from legislation introduced earlier this month by Sens. Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz that would halt American funding to the United Nations until the president confirms the repeal of a U.N. Security Council resolution that called Israel’s building of settlements in disputed areas a violation of international law, The Hill reports.
