Skimmer boats

Monday, June 28, 2010

I've written Carol Browner, the President's top environmental adviser, to tell her and the administration how badly we need skimming boats in the Gulf of Mexico:

Ms. Browner,

I have heard that 13 other countries including the Dutch, have offered us the use of skimming boats. Could you let me know where the White House is on this issue.

These boats need to be in the Gulf of Mexico dealing with the oil there, not in our inland waterways.

There is oil in Pensacola Bay as I write.

Also could you update me on the status of waiving the Jones Act?

Thank you for your assistance.

Larry B. Johnson
City Councilman - District 4
