Rep. Taylor Offended by Oil Platform’s Foreign Connections 6

Posted on June 22, 2010 by bp complaints

Rep. Gene Taylor (Miss.) says he is “personally offended” that the ill-fated oil platform Deepwater Horizon was built in Korea, registered in the Marshall Islands, and that the profits it generated went to a company in Switzerland, while Americans suffer the brunt of the pollution created by the platform’s failure. Rep. Taylor made the remarks during a Capitol Hill hearing by the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure on June 9, 2010.
