You might, and you can just create it yourself.

Go to the Bundle Editor (Window menu). Locate the current command in  
the Text bundle. Duplicate it and change it to:

    perl -pe 's/[^\t\n\x20-\x7F]//g'

Then you have a command which remove all but ASCII (though it also  
remove the control characters in ASCII).

If you only need it once, you can instead just fire the above command  
using opt-cmd R (Filter Through Command…)

There is btw a Transliterate Word / Selection to ASCII which may also  
work (it finds ASCII characters for the non-ASCII stuff in current  
word / selection, for example making your non-breakable space into a  
regular space etc.).
