We have been blogging about the BP Oil Spill that started on April 6. The Texas Attorney General had filed a lawsuit, stating that BP violated the clean air act in that the spill released toxic chemicals, including benzene, into the air.

The EPA recently issued a press release that they have begun an investigation to the release of benzene, and have ordered BP to produce documents regarding operations during the incident.

We will continue to be monitoring this situation closely.
