WASHINGTON (AP) - House Democratic leaders plan to pass a bill
this week that would give subpoena power to the panel investigating
the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said House leaders plan to
vote on the bill as early as Wednesday and he expects it to pass.
President Barack Obama has appointed a seven-member commission
to investigate the spill. Hoyer said the commission needs subpoena
power to get to the bottom of the nation's largest oil spill.
