The former members of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Commission aren’t handing out any “A’s” as they grade the progress industry, Congress and the Interior Department have made since the accident two years ago. In a new report, the members reserve their harshest criticism for Congress, which they say hasn’t done enough to make offshore oil drilling safer. Former Lt. Governor Fran Ulmer was a member of the commission. She says it’s not all bad news, some good changes have been made.
Fran Ulmer is Chair of the U.S. Arctic Research Commission and a former member of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Commission. She is speaking about the new report in a presentation at the University of Anchorage Bookstore tomorrow at 5pm.
