Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions May 21, 2015
Bill Nelson, D-FL
"This is the oilspill that just happened in the last few days. It is fresh crude, and it is on the beach in California. Of course, when I see this kind of picture, it brings me back to that experience all of us on the gulf coast had 5 years ago, and we wouldn’t wish that upon anybody. Remember, to begin with, they said, Oh, it is just a few hundred barrels of oil, even though it was ruptured 1 mile beneath the surface of the water. Then we got the streaming video. We actually put that video on my Web site. The chairman of the environment committee, Senator Boxer, put it up on her committee Web site. Once scientists could see how much was flowing, they could calculate, and then they saw that it wasn’t going to be a few hundred or even a thousand barrels of oil a day; it was approaching something like 50 times that."
