Sen. Bob Corker continues to question UN disabilities treaty The Tennessean

WASHINGTON — Republican Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee continues to voice concerns about a proposed United Nations treaty on the rights of the disabled.

The treaty — known as the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities — was also put before the Senate in 2012 but the chamber rejected ratification on a 61-38 vote, five votes short of the needed two-thirds majority. Both Corker and Sen. Lamar Alexander, also a Republican, voted against it.
