Environment & Public Works Committee to Hold Hearing on Oil Spill


The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee “plans to hold a hearing on the Gulf oil spill next Tuesday, adding to a crowded calendar of oil hearings,” the AP reports.

Committee Chairwoman Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., says the hearing will examine the spill’s impact on the economy and environment. Officials from BP, Halliburton and Transocean are expected to testify.

The Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee and the House Energy and Commerce Committee also plan hearings on the spill next week. And the Senate Commerce Committee will also hold a hearing, but no date has been set yet.
