Former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott is now lobbying for ratification of the same Law of the Sea Treaty that he opposed when he was as senator because he said it “would put a number of our entities, including the private sector and the military in my opinion at the mercy of the U.N. bureaucracy.”
Lott is a lobbyist with Breaux Lott Leadership Group, a subsidiary of the lobbying firm Patton Boggs LLP. He is partnering with former U.S. Sen. John Breaux of Louisiana. According to lobbying reports filed this year, the firm is being paid $80,000 by Shell Oil Company  and another $30,000 by Pike Associates LLC  to promote passage of the Law of the Sea Treaty under consideration in the U.S. Senate.
Lott declined to comment for CNSNews.com, said Kelly Mixon, public policy advisor for Patton Boggs.
On April 30, the Heritage Foundation investigative reporting website “Scribe,” first reported that Lott is lobbying for the ratification of the treaty.
