BP's pipeline safety record defended by Alaska Rep. Young

BP has had few friends on Capitol Hill in recent months, so it was something of a surprise Thursday when Rep. Don Young, R-Alaska, took up the company's case as an Alaska business. Young called the employees of BP "honorable people," and defended the safety record of the 800-mile pipeline system operated by Alyeska Pipeline Service Co. during a House hearing to examine pipeline safety issues across the country.
