LA Times: Lawmakers Set June 26 Hearing on Refugio State Beach Oil Spill

June 09, 2015

The hearing, scheduled for June 26 at 2 p.m., was announced by Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara), who is chairwoman of a new Senate select committee on the oil spill. About 21,000 gallons of oil went into the ocean after the pipeline ruptured May 19.

“We want to look to see why this incident happened and to make sure it doesn’t happen again,” Jackson said at a Capitol news conference,  joined by eight other lawmakers.
