Is Frist LOST?

When Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R.-Tenn.) was asked Tuesday if he planned to move forward with a ratification vote for the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST), he evaded answering the question. “It is an issue that has been around for a while,” Frist said. “There is a lot of debate, a lot of concern. It has been addressed by the Foreign Relations Committee, and I assume it will address it again this year, in which case we’ll consider whether or not or when to bring it up.” Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Richard Lugar (R.-Ind.) supports LOST, as does the Bush Administration, according to newly minted Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
