During its first meeting dealing largely with substantive rather than organizational issues, the U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy in November unanimously urged the U.S. Senate to ratify the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.
The treaty, which entered into force in November 1994 without U.S. support, currently has been ratified by 119 other countries.
