Environment - "Senators want to talk to BP as Indiana oil spill estimate grows"

Of course they are Illinois senators... Here is how the brief story in the Gary Post Tribune begins:

Illinois’ U.S. senators asked Thursday for a meeting with BP after oil from the company’s Whiting refinery spilled Monday into Lake Michigan and the company increased its estimate of the amount of oil that was released.

U.S. Sens. Dick Durbin and Mark Kirk sent a letter to BP CEO John Minge saying they’re “deeply concerned” about the spill. They want to talk with him about potential public health and environmental threats to surrounding communities.
