Oil Spill Commission Action

Oil Spill Commission Action

The National Oil Spill Commission, tasked by President Obama, to determine the root causes of the April 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and to make recommendations on how to prevent such disasters in the future. Contracted by the Oil Spill Committee Action group, the staff at IAN worked closely with them to design and layout this important report. The goal was to assess by grade the progress made by the Administration, Congress, and the Oil Industry to implement recommendations made by the Commission.
