requests for Jones Act waivers should they be received as a part of the BP oil spill response. history. No Jones Act waivers have been granted because none of these vessels have required such a waiver to conduct their operations in the Gulf of Mexico. Maritime Administration to ensure any Jones Act waiver requests receive urgent attention and processing.
"If there is the need for any type of waiver, that would obviously be granted," White House spokesman Robert Gibbs promised on June 10. "But, we've not had that problem thus far in the Gulf."

Should BP pay, and pay big? Yes.
As a self proclaimed "citizen of the world," President Obama should have welcomed rather than spurned international assistance to prevent BP's underwater oil geyser from wrecking the Gulf Coast. But spurn, he did. Obama's failure to waive the Jones Act still maintains a sea wall that blocks potentially helpful foreign ships from this tear inducing mess.
The Nike Air Max Ladies 2016 1920 Jones Act requires that vessels operating in American waters be built, owned, and manned by Americans. ship owners love this protectionist measure. So do maritime labor unions. When it comes to confronting unions, Obama rarely crosses that line.
And the crude oil keeps on flowing.
But since when does the American president "inform" executives that they must devote billions to any cause, no matter how worthy? Isn't this why Congress passes legislation and courts administer justice?
Alas, they were turned away in a State Department statement. would have summoned a global armada of mercy. Who knows how many fishing, shrimping, and seafood processing jobs this would have saved? Instead, thousands of Gulf Coast workers will endure a long march from dormant docks to bustling unemployment lines.
"While we have not seen any need to waive the Jones Act as part of this historic response, we continue to prepare for all possible scenarios," said Admiral Allen. "Should any waivers be needed, we are prepared to process them as quickly as possible to allow vital spill response activities being undertaken by foreign flagged vessels Nike Air Max 2017 Boys
The Jones Act sometimes gets waived. Customs official ruled recently that the Jones Act does not apply to foreign owned vessels installing wind turbines off the coast of Delaware."

waters off Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, and (potentially) the Carolinas and points north, if this mass of oil (so far, roughly equal to 13 Exxon Valdez oil spills) enters the Loop Current, swerves around Key West, slips into the Gulf Stream, and slides up the Eastern Seaboard.
This article should be in every newspaper in the US, and especially those in the Gulf states. I had heard this early on and was shocked that it got no better coverage. It is an absolute national disgrace and we should immediately have a congressional investigation. The Presidency is above Obama's pay grade.
And BP had decided to put up the 20B before it met with the white house. Not that anyone should care that the president would have demanded such anyway.
So, while a pro labor trade barrier traps potentially helpful boats in overseas ports, due process withers under presidential diktat.
this is insane.
Due process?? Right. But, terror suspects lock them up forever without so much as a discussion.
Reckless? BP sure seems so.
"The embassy got a nice letter from the administration that said, 'Thanks, but no thanks,'" Dutch consul general Geert Visser told the Houston Chronicle's Loren Steffy. Had those Dutch ships departed nearly two months ago, who knows how much oil they already would have absorbed and how many pelicans now would soar rather than soak in soapy water while wildlife experts clean their wings. also had offered skimmer boats and other assets and experts to prevent the oil from destroying dolphins, crabs, oysters, and this disaster's other defenseless victims.
Watching Obama's June 15 Oval Office address, BP's brass must have been startled to hear the president say: "I will meet with the chairman of BP and inform him that he is to set aside whatever resources are required to compensate the workers and business owners who have been harmed as a result of his company's recklessness."
On April 20, the Deepwater Horizon rig exploded killing 11 workers, and began gushing perhaps 60,000 barrels of petroleum daily. Three days later, the Dutch offered to sail to the rescue on ships bedecked with oil skimming booms. They also had a plan for erecting protective sand barricades.
Problem? What problem?
