I urge Congress to focus on the environmental degradation that continues as a result of the ongoing release of oil into the water. An investigation into the accident aboard the Horizon should be held, along with other legislative business, but thousand of barrels of crude oil shouldn't be spilling into the sea while that is carried out. Are the best solutions proposed being utilized, who should command the effort? Are superior, less toxic dispersants available? If this isn't handled well, no investigation will be able to fix it. We still have a chance to avert total disaster. Congress should make sure that any plan that might worsen the leak is subject to public scrutiny and careful consideration.
