Tell the EPA Not to Cut a Deal With BP

Sign the Petition Urging the EPA Not to Lift BP’s Suspension

For the past 15 months, BP — the corporation responsible for the Gulf oil disaster and numerous other safety, environmental and ethics violations — has been prohibited from receiving new oil drilling leases or other federal contracts.

But just this week, the president of BP America Inc. told an oil and gas association that “the company is getting closer to an agreement that would let it participate in federal oil lease sales and get other federal contracts.”

Sign Below to Support EPA’s Suspension of BP from Federal Contracts.

We the undersigned, urge the EPA not to reach an agreement with BP that would reward the corporation with lucrative contracts and access to natural resources extracted from public land and waters. We believe that the government's case in defense of its decision to maintain BP's suspension from federal contracts is strong, and we want the case to go forward so the court can rule against BP.

Learn More about the distinction between these two components of Public Citizen.

Public Citizen, Inc. and Public Citizen Foundation

Together, two separate corporate entities called Public Citizen, Inc. and Public Citizen Foundation, Inc., form Public Citizen. Both entities are part of the same overall organization, and this Web site refers to the two organizations collectively as Public Citizen.

Although the work of the two components overlaps, some activities are done by one component and not the other. The primary distinction is with respect to lobbying activity. Public Citizen, Inc., an IRS § 501(c)(4) entity, lobbies Congress to advance Public Citizen’s mission of protecting public health and safety, advancing government transparency, and urging corporate accountability. Public Citizen Foundation, however, is an IRS § 501(c)(3) organization. Accordingly, its ability to engage in lobbying is limited by federal law, but it may receive donations that are tax-deductible by the contributor. Public Citizen Inc. does most of the lobbying activity discussed on the Public Citizen Web site. Public Citizen Foundation performs most of the litigation and education activities discussed on the Web site.

You may make a contribution to Public Citizen, Inc., Public Citizen Foundation, or both. Contributions to both organizations are used to support our public interest work. However, each Public Citizen component will use only the funds contributed directly to it to carry out the activities it conducts as part of Public Citizen’s mission. Only gifts to the Foundation are tax-deductible. Individuals who want to join Public Citizen should make a contribution to Public Citizen, Inc., which will not be tax deductible.
