(Note:  On December 22 we wrote a letter to Governor Sarah Palin, asking her to examine the facts concerning the U.N.’s Law of the Sea treaty. We have not received an answer to our letter. Can you help us get her attention on this matter?

The telephone number 907- 465-3500 will take you directly to her office. Please ask the Governor to come out against the Law of the Sea Treaty. Bill McAllister, the Governor's Communications Director and Press Secretary, can also be contacted. He can be reached by phone at 907-269-7450 or by fax at 907-269-7463.

Palin can also can be contacted through her “SARAHPAC” organization at 202-747-1812.

Please ask that the Governor respond to the America’s Survival, Inc. December 22 letter to her regarding her support of the Law of the Sea Treaty.

What follows is a copy of another letter to Alaska Governor Sarah Palin regarding her support of the U.N. Law of the Sea Treaty. HJR 26 was on the failure of the State Department to establish maritime boundaries with Canada.  HJR 27 was on the giveaway maritime boundary agreement with Russia.)

Re:  Law of Sea Treaty (LOST)

Dear Governor Palin:

You are considering the implications of the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST).  We urge you to oppose it as being detrimental to the interests of the State of Alaska and the rest of the country.

 Under LOST, the State of Alaska has absolutely no say or standing whatsoever with regard to ocean boundaries or resources.   The U. S. Department of State claims 100% authority in these matters for the United States, with no power for states, including advisory and co-equal status.  Under LOST, the problem gets one step worse with authority thrown over to the unaccountable and opaque United Nations.

 Alaska already suffers from being ignored totally by the U. S. Department of State over maritime boundary issues.  You can read two resolutions of the Legislature of 1999 regarding the adverse situation of maritime boundaries with Russia and Canada.   HJR 26 and HJR 27 passed the Legislature nearly unanimously.   A decade later, the State Department has done absolutely nothing to resolve these important issues for Alaska.

Under  LOST, the situation of the State of Alaska will only get worse.  There is no upside.  You should oppose it.  You should also press the State Department to implement HJR 26 and HJR 27 immediately.  Please direct all replies to our West Coast Office.
