From Staff ReportsJanuary 21, 2011 

— A leader of the presidential commission that investigated the BP oil spill will speak at Duke University next week.

William K. Reilly, co-chairman of the National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling, will discuss his group's 380-page report Monday.

Reilly's talk starts at 5 p.m. in the RJ Reynolds Theater in Duke's Bryan Center. It is free and open to the public, but tickets are required and can be reserved on the box office website, tickets.duke.edu, or by calling 684-4444.

Released last week, the commission's report calls for Congress to approve new regulations for offshore drilling as well as funding for an agency to oversee them.
