EXCERPT

APNews Break: Exxon agrees to $1.6 million settlement with Mont. over Yellowstone River spill.

BILLINGS, Mont.(AP)' A state official says Exxon Mobil has agreed to $1.6 million in penalties to settle water pollution violations from a major oil pipeline break that fouled dozens of miles of shoreline along Montana's scenic Yellowstone River.

Montana Department of Environmental Quality director Richard Opper told The Associated Press Thursday that the penalty marks the largest in the agency's history.

Opper says the Texas oil company will pay $300,000 in cash and spend $1.3 million on future environmental projects. Exxon will reimburse more than $760,000 in emergency response costs racked up by state agencies.

MY TAKE

Too little too late but this CHUMP CHANGE settlement beats what those that suffered in the EXXON VALDEZ case got which has been NOTHING.

Too bad BIG OIL and GAS owns about all of our Political leaders, from city, county, state and yes Federal. So what must be done?

Show the light on all their greedy corruptions and environmental disruptions in our land.
