Moratorium may be lifted early

BATON ROUGE - U.S. Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar and Bureau of Ocean Energy, Michael Bromwich are gathering information to decide whether to revise or lift oil moratorium which has shut down drilling at 33 ocean wells in the wake of the BP spill. Bromwich said Tuesday that officials hope to feel comfortable enough with safety improvements so the moratorium can be lifted in advance of the November 30th expiration date.

Bromwich is hosting a series of public forums on the Gulf Coast starting Wednesday in New Orleans.
