    BP's fines

    Guess you jailhouse lawyers have some "booklarnin' " to do !
    .
    you can start with the oil pollution act.
    .
    then read the clean air act. (guess you thought only the water was polluted, eh, geniuses ?)
    .
    after that, go look at the coastal zone management act, the magnuson fishery conservation and management act, the marine mammals protection act, and their relevant regulations.
    .
    don't forget what used to be the minerals management service. It's under new management, now, and they're no longer sleeping with the oil companies. They've got laws and regulations that are on point, too.
    .
    then you can read the civil penalty policies for all the laws that are in play.
    .
    when you get through with that, you can go to each of the affected gulf states, and check their laws and penalties, to see what will hit bp after the feds are done.
    .
    happy due diligence, y'all !
