BREAKING: Congress Moves Legislation to Learn Lessons of BP

JUST IN: Congress drops assault on EPA, passes legislation to learn lessons of BP disaster and fund Gulf restorationWouldn’t that be nice? Unfortunately, April fools dreaming aside, we’re still stuck where we are, with hostile members of Congress brushing aside the reasoned recommendations of the oil spill commission in favor of gung-ho oil industry boosterism, tied to dubious claims of bringing down the price of gas.If you’d like to help flip the script, and make sure that as the one-year memorial of the BP disaster approaches Washington assures our region a more community accountable oil industry and government regulators, a fully funded Gulf restoration initiative, and community recovery on the scale necessary, please head here and send your message to your members of Congress. Even better, help GRN spread that message at your local earth day festivities, by joining our Healthy Gulf Krewe.Aaron Viles is GRN’s Deputy Director. You can follow him on twitter here.
