Today, Congressman Blake Farenthold (TX-27) questioned Rear Admiral Paul Zukunft, Assistant Commandant, United States Coast Guard and Mr. Frank Rusco Director at the Government Accountability Office at the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation to examine the lessons learned from the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

"No matter how much we overregulate the American oil and gas industry, drilling offshore from Cuba and Mexico poses a threat to the Gulf Coast. We must focus on how to respond to these potential disasters."
