Keep Pressure on Senate to Respond to Oil Disaster

Before leaving for August recess, the US Senate decided not to take up legislation that would serve as a good first step toward addressing the oil spill disaster. 

The success of the temporary cap on the well that has gushed  4.9 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, and the debatable government report that 2/3 of the oil has been accounted for threatens to prematurely push the worst environmental disaster in US history to the back burner.

That's why as constituents we need to voice our support for the passage of the the Clean Energy Jobs and Oil Company Accountability Act of 2010.
