SFRC: Treaty Favorably Reported

Today, at its business meeting, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee ordered favorably reported the International Convention Against Doping in Sport (Treaty Doc. 110-14). The treaty was transmitted to the Senate on February 6th, and the SFRC held a hearing on May 22nd. Expect the full Senate to provide its advice and consent shortly, as it is clear that the Convention's ratification is being timed ("fast-tracked" might be the better expression in this context) to coincide with the Olympic Games later this summer.
