Janet Reno on Energy & Oil
Former Attorney General; Democratic Challenger FL Governor
"This record civil penalty will put those who transport hazardous materials on notice--you cannot endanger public health or the environment," said Attorney General Janet Reno. "We will not let you foul our water and spoil our land by breaking the law."
Koch must pay $15 million of the $30 million penalty into the federal government's Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund, created in 1990 following the Exxon Valdez incident in Alaska. The fund helps pay for damages, cleanup costs and some operation expenses related to oil spills.
