LOST is on Its Way To Senate Floor

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee voted 17-4 to refer the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (or LOST) to the Senate floor for ratification.

I’ve written in opposition to LOST here and here.

I oppose the treaty because it is superfluous; we already have the advantage of its substantive provisions. Moreover, we have those advantages without having to sign on to dubious prospects like a new international tribunal.

The senator from my home state has been leading the opposition to LOST. His latest remarks on it are here. Read it, then call your senator.
