Assessing Progress

The National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling established by President Obama was tasked with determining the root causes of the April 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill, evaluate the responses, and make recommendations to minimize the risk that such a disaster would ever happen again. This report by the Commission is a graded progress assessment of the Administration, Congress, and the Oil Industry on implementing those recommendations.
