Dear Fellow Georgians,
The Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) is still pending in the U.S. Senate. LOST is another United Nations treaty that was negotiated in the 1970s. It was rejected by President Reagan and should clearly remain buried deep in our sea bed.
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee held a hearing on Wednesday, May 23, on LOST, in which only proponents of the treaty testified. Fortunately, Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) is leading the charge to stop this treaty. He has circulated a letter to oppose LOST and already has 26 signers on the letter. We need at least eight more senators to join his efforts and Sen. Johnny Isakson (R- GA) is one of those senators.
Take Action Now:
1. Please contact Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA) at 770-661-0999 and ask him to sign the letter that Sen. DeMint is circulating. CWA visited Sen. Isakson’s offices both in Washington D.C. and in Atlanta, but as of July 5, 2012 Sen. Isakson continues to stay neutral on the treaty and will not sign Sen. Demint’s letter.
2. Please call Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R- GA) at 770-763-9090 and thank him for signing onto Sen. DeMint’s letter to oppose LOST.
CWA of Georgia
