"Reporting from Washington The Interior Department
, moving closer to lifting a moratorium on offshore oil and gas drilling, issued new rules Thursday aimed at improving safety after the BP oil spill
"Administration officials and independent experts said the rules are an important step toward resumption of deep-water oil and gas exploration, which was halted in response to the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon rig that killed 11 men and spewed 4.9 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico
""There are a series of technological and safety reforms that this administration is very serious about implementing, that need to be implemented and secured prior to the lifting of that moratorium," said White House
Press Secretary Robert Gibbs."
