UN Law of the Sea Treaty - a "must do"
SENATE FOREIGN RELATIONS COMMITTEE Law of the Sea Treaty - A hearing on the Law of the Sea treaty: Perspectives from business and industry Witnesses: Thomas J. Donohue, president and CEO, U.S. Chamber of Commerce Jack N. Gerard, president and CEO, American Petroleum Institute Jay Timmons, president and CEO, National Association of Manufacturers Lowell C. McAdam, chairman and CEO, Verizon Communications Inc., New York, N.Y. (9:30a-11:30a June 28, 2012)
Business leaders testified on the United Nations Law of the Sea Treaty, an international convention that sets rules for under- and over-sea travel and commerce.
This is probably the most important matter pending before the U.S. Senate and needs ratification/accession ASAP! Its beneficial impacts include off-shore drilling, telecommunications cables, and other issues addressed in the Senate Committee hearing video above.
