Dear Mr. President,

In regards to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, I request that you advocate for the following:

(1) BP and clean-up efforts by their collaborative partners to stop using COREXIT on our coastal waters.

(2) Force the use of tankers and/or supertankers in the Gulf for skimming to collect the oil currently making it to the surface to minimize coastal impact.

(3) A full investigation into the business practices of which led up to the accident in question with proper parties being respectively held criminally and civilly liable.

(4) A review of European safety practices that are currently not in place in the coastal waters of the United States and the expedient enactment/implementation of those safety policies in hopes to reduce accidents of this magnitude in the future

(5) The removal of liability cap that is currently placed on oil companies in order to insure adequate clean-up and remediation expenses are covered by the negligent parties in the future

(6) The use of bio-remediation in the clean-up efforts of our coast

(7) The creation of more offshore berms and protective barrier islands off the coast of Louisiana and a policy shift to aid in the restoration of the Louisiana coast that has negatively been affected by decades of offshore exploration

(8) That oil and gas royalties allotted to the State of Louisiana for offshore drilling be expedited to state coffers in advance of the current timeline of the year 2017

and lastly (9) The allowance of media in areas that have currently been off-limits by BP security and those acting under their directives in order to insure full transparency for the public trust and knowledge.

Understanding the imperatives of the oil economy of the State of Louisiana, the ecological impact this disaster on the Gulf Coast, the damaging effect on our seafood industry and beyond, please consider my above requests in your policy considerations.

Many thanks in advance for your due consideration,

Michael "Rex" Dingler
