I am glad that they are working on this issue, now if we can get the news industry to get the message out to the public. The media has moved on and the oil industry is hoping that we forget and they can go back to business as usual.

We do not need new laws. We have laws on the books that already address these concerns. Every single time we have a tradegy like this the politicians run around saying we need new laws. No! you need to fire the employees of the agencies with oversight who have chsen to look the other way. The oil industry is a good example of this blatent corruption. Big oil hires the government official as a consultant paying them several times what they would make working for the government and he or she looks the other way. If you are going to pass any law make one that prevents the willful destruction of trust by ex-regulators who are secretly on the payroll of big oil companies. The MMS is a clear example of this marriage between government and industry. There are laws there too but the corruption runs so deep that no politician would ever say anything bad about our beloved big oil companies or their eternal companions in the coal industry.
