Rep. Guttenberg on BP spill settlement

Today, Alaska State Representative David Guttenberg (D-Fairbanks)released the following statement in reaction to the settlement between BP and the federal government over the company’s neglect that lead to Trans Alaska Pipeline System (TAPS) spills on the North Slope of Alaska in 2006.

“The integrity of the pipeline depends on the integrity of the companies running it. I’m still skeptical that at the end of the day these fines will make much of a difference. BP thinks these fines are a cost of doing business. If they had taken proper care of the pipeline like they say they do, these spills would never happen.”
