HOUSTON (AP) - The US government is expected to take over control of the central information website on the Gulf oil spill response that has been run jointly by various agencies and BP.
The Department of Homeland Security wants a one-stop shop for information that is completely overseen by the government as it settles into the long-haul of dealing with the response to the disaster.
BP and the government are part of a unified command that is working together to try to contain the oil gusher, but the government has been directing BP at every turn.
A DHS spokesman tells The Associated Press that the joint relationship won't change when the website is given a dot-gov address instead of a dot-com address.
But who can post information to the site would change.
