Assessing Progress: Implementing the Recommendations of the National Oil Spill Commission

Assessing Progress report thumbnailWith the specter of the April 2010 Gulf of Mexico BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill still fresh and the nation's increasing demand for domestic oil production, this report has been released by Oil Spill Commission Action, former members of President Obama's National Oil Spill Commission. The report assesses the progress by the Administration, Congress, and the oil industry to implement the Commission's recommendations to prevent and respond to oil spills, and to ensure responsible offshore drilling, especially in areas such as Alaska that present special challenges and risks.
