Sen. Patty Murray blasted BP on Thursday for failing to attend her subcommittee's hearing on oil and gas worker safety.
"Honestly, I find it very outrageous that even after an accident that killed 11 workers, BP is not putting a high enough priority on worker safety to send a representative to a hearing specifically focused on protecting workers in their industry," the chairwoman of the Senate Health, Education and Labor's subcommittee on Employment and Workplace Safety, said.
And she offered a warning to the company: "I am not going to stop working to get answers from BP."
