Based on the task force’s work, on July 28, 2016, the Technical Advisory Committee provided the Administrator and the Legislature link opens in new windowfinal recommendations (PDF) and a link opens in new windowreport (PDF) on whether vessels of opportunity should be included in oil spill response planning.
