Sen. LeMieux to POTUS: Remove Bureaucracy and Send More Skimmers to Gulf Disaster

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator George LeMieux (R-FL) today spoke on FOX News and MSNBC voicing his concerns over the lack of skimmers coming to the Gulf to aid in the cleanup efforts. LeMieux, who just returned from the Gulf on Friday, is in Pensacola again today and Tuesday to meet with President Obama and Admiral Thad Allen. LeMieux will encourage President Obama to waive portions of the Jones Act, which would immediately allow international skimmers in the Gulf.
