On Thursday, July 1st, Congresswoman Judy Chu spoke in favor of the The Securing Protections for the Injured from Limitations on Liability Act (SPILL Act) during the bills debate on the House floor.  In encouraging her colleagues to vote for the bill, Chu noted the bill fixes discrepancies between compensation for maritime deaths and land-based ones, allows for families to seek damages for pain and suffering, and removes caps on the liability owed by Transocean, the owner of the Deep Horizon rig.
