House votes to remove oil spill liability cap - CNN.com
Quote(The House of Representatives passed legislation Friday which would lift the current $75 million liability cap for oil spills while imposing new safety standards for offshore drilling.)
They can pass the most draconian measures ever.
None of what they pass matter a damn if they are unwilling to enforce regulations.
We have seen multiple knee jerk reactions to various scenario's where there has been loss of life.
In most of these instances the end result after an investigation is usually put down to a lack of enforcement of regulations.
So, unless & until Regulations are enforced, people will continue to die.
