How far will Attorney General Eric Holder go back in his Oil Catastrophe investigation? Minerals Management Service (MMS) adopted a voluntary approach to safety and environmental compliance in 1994 during the Clinton administration. Sixteen years later MMS has a new name, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE).
BOEMRE has 2010 SAFE Awards to pass out. BP was one of three finalists for the drilling safety award, until the Deepwater Horizon blew out.
The first relief well could intercept the runaway spew by July 27. Should that not work, private oriented Bill Clinton has the answer, one he picked up from Matt Simmons.
