Oil Spill Commission Co-Chair Stopped in Gainesville
The future of Florida is under "assault" according to one of the state's most prominent leaders. Oil spill commission co-chair Bob Graham stopped in Gainesville Thursday night to discuss the report about the worst man-made disaster in our nation's history. He said the spill wasn't a result of one rogue company but poor standards that allowed a company with the worst safety record to drill in the most dangerous place.
"Florida is the state that is at the bull's eye of the target if something goes wrong in the Gulf because of less than world class standards of safety we are going to get the impact of that," said Graham.
