“I am disappointed that an effort to ensure that oil companies pay fully for disasters they cause has stalled in the United States Senate on a partisan basis.

This maneuver threatens to leave taxpayers, rather than the oil companies, on the hook for future disasters like the BP oil spill.

I urge the Senate Republicans to stop playing special interest politics and join in a bipartisan effort to protect taxpayers and demand accountability from the oil companies.”
