"Lawmakers will meet with environmental groups Tuesday to gauge the impact from an explosion aboard a BP oil rig that uncorked a gusher of oil off the coast of Louisiana," according to CNN. "On Monday, the lawmakers introduced legislation to do away with an existing $75 million cap on oil companies for damages resulting from spills, such as loss of tourism revenue. The senators want to raise the cap to $10 billion. "BP says it'll pay for this mess. Baloney," said Nelson, referring to the oil giant that owns the well at the heart of the problem."
