Indicative of public and political opinion of offshore oil drilling more than 100 days after the BP oil leak began, the House has approved by a vote of 315 to 93 legislation to extend modern whistleblower protections to workers whose employers are engaged in oil and gas exploration, drilling, production, or cleanup on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). Currently, individuals working on the OCS have no protection against retaliation by an employer for speaking up on hazardous conditions.
