As Friday’s House recess deadline looms, the CLEAR Act is rushing toward a floor vote. The CLEAR Act was supposed to fix whatever went wrong with Federal oversight of the Deepwater Horizon. One provision of the bill, offered by Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA), would have set up a Congressional commission of petroleum engineering experts to investigate the accident. This proposal was accepted unanimously in committee and a similar idea has been endorse by the Senate.

According to Connie Hair at Human Events, the idea for a Congressional commission died on Mme. Speaker’s desk. Apparently Ms. Pelosi’s magical powers of divination extend beyond the ability to discern the content of legislation without reading it; she can also prevent future oil spills using only taxes, slush funds and earmarks, without even bothering to investigate why this well failed.
