Former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole is making another push for ratification of the U.N. disabilities treaty.  

The Kansas Republican issued a statement late Monday saying that the Supreme Court's decision in Bond v. United States provided a path forward for the Senate to consent to ratification of the treaty, which stalled on the floor during the 2012 lame-duck session, with an ailing Dole present on the floor.
