Lamb Appointed To Oil Spill Oversight Council

Mark Lamb was appointed to the oil spill oversight counsel at the recent Texas Waterway Operators Association (TWOA) meeting.

Mr. Lamb is currently the president of TWOA as well as vice president of Barge Transport Company Inc.. His term with TWOA will expire soon, and at that time a new president will be announced.

Mr. Lamb's appointment is significant because it gives the barge industry the opportunity to have direct input into the implementation of the Texas Oil Spill Act. The appointment is also an achievement for the members of the TWOA, who for more than two years took time out of their schedules to testify at house and senate hearings, write letters, and work with their representatives in Austin during the oil spill legislative process.

The Texas Oil Spill Prevention Response Act of 1991 was passed and is now being implemented. The purpose of the council is to assist the Texas general land office in implementing the Oil Spill Act.
