Date: July 16, 2010
Issues: Oil and Gas

Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-Texas), Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, released the following statement on the latest developments in the Gulf Coast oil spill:

"I am grateful that the gushing well seems to be controlled at the present time, and am confident in the abilities of the engineers and experts working to ensure the spill is stopped. However, there is more work to be done. Thousands of workers are continuing to work around the clock on containment and clean-up efforts, and they must continue to receive all of the support and resources their tasks require. While there is still a ways to go, the latest developments are promising, and I hope for continued progress to plug the well permanently."
