The governor was joined by Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson, who provided an update on the Texas General Land Office's (GLO) efforts in monitoring and preparing contingency plans to respond to any potential impact Deepwater Horizon oil spill may have on Texas.

"Texas has a long history in the energy industry, and because oil regularly comes in and out of our ports, we have prepared ourselves to respond to any incidents, and have a good record of keeping our beaches clean and the bays and wetlands clear of oil," Commissioner Patterson said. "As a steward of the Texas coast, I am confident that we have the resources and plans in place with our Oil Spill Prevention and Response Program to address any potential impact this oil spill may have on the Texas coast."
