WASHINGTON, D.C., January 5, 2011 - House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Doc Hastings (WA-04) released the following statement after the National Oil Spill Commission released one chapter of its final report on the Deepwater Horizon tragedy and subsequent oil spill:

“This chapter of the National Oil Spill Commission’s final report provides initial insight into a very complicated and terrible tragedy.
