“The irony of all this is that the only company drilling in the [deepwater] Gulf today is the company that caused the spill – British Petroleum” – US Sen Mary Landrieu, D-La., commenting during “The Deepwater Drilling Moratorium: A Second Economic Disaster for Small Business?”, a hearing convened on 27 July by the US Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship. Sen Landrieu chairs the committee.

Sen David Vitter, R-La., observed at the hearing that, despite his invitation, the Obama Administration failed to provide a representative to the hearing to explain a rationale for the moratorium. Sen Vitter was substituting for committee ranking member Sen Olympia Snow, R-Maine.
