Public Citizen is calling on the EPA to ban BP from federal contracts for five years before reconsidering the corporation’s contractor eligibility.
We, the undersigned, urge you to debar BP, as the 14 criminal guilty pleas and past criminal history demonstrate BP to be a nonresponsbile entity.

This debarment should last through the company’s five year criminal probation period, and should include access to new government oil and natural gas leases, in addition to contracts.

It is clear that, as a repeat criminal felon, BP no longer can be trusted to effectively serve as a contractor or as a federal leaseholder. Its promises to do better going forward are not a sufficient basis for finding that it is a responsible entity.

After all BP has done, only a demonstrated record of responsible conduct over a period of years can satisfy that threshold.

"The timing is quite convenient, especially considering that the next round of auctions for offshore drilling leases is scheduled for March 20.

Despite spewing more than 200 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, BP is still one of the largest leaseholders in the region — and its dominance in the area could increase significantly.

If its suspension gets lifted, the corporate criminal will be eligible for the 38 million acres of drilling leases in the Gulf.

Not only is our government offering a get out-of-jail-free card to BP — which just recently pleaded guilty to 14 criminal charges — but it also could green-light the corporation to bid on extremely lucrative federal contracts within the next few weeks"

I remember listening to the radio as millions of gallons of crude oil gushed into the gulf coast and wondering what could possibly be done to hold those responsible accountable for the damage done. Well, this would be a good start as far as I'm concerned. The cost of doing business with BP is just too damn high when they plan to deduct their damages paid from the taxes they are legally required to remit as a multi-billion dollar corporation operating in America. Don't allow our hard-earned tax dollars to aid and offset a criminally negligent company!!!!

The free ride that Big Oil has had needs to end. Big Oil needs to be held accountable for every mishap that occurs. The tax breaks need to end. Every effort needs to be made to end the use of oil and gas for generating electricity.

A coworker of mine proudly stated that BP cleaned up its mess. Well, yes, but if it had taken proper precautions, there wouldn't have been a mess to clean up in the first place!
