Senate committee debates international 'Law of the Sea' treaty

The U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee gave critics a chance to air their concerns about the Law of the Sea Treaty today. In testimony last week, top defense and State Department officials said they believed ratification of the treaty was in the best national security and economic interests of the nation. However, a small but vocal group of critics believe it would undermine U.S. sovereignty in a range of ways.
