C-SPAN - Congress held five hearings related to the OIL Spill

.


On the 51st day since the Gulf oil rig explosion, Congress held five hearings related to the incident. At the Senate Energy Committee, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar discussed issues such as moratoriums on offshore drilling and the relationship between the Mineral Management Services and oil companies. Other hearings looked at legal liability for oil spills, the cause of the explosion and how to deal with the cleanup of oil spills.

In his daily update, Adm. Thad Allen said that yesterday 630,000 gallons of oil were diverted to oil containment ships and more is expected to flow into those vessels in the coming days.
