Pew Oceans Commission's Panetta calls for more urgency with ocean reform bills

With several proposals for ocean reform on the table, advocates are growing frustrated with the slow response from Congress and the Bush administration to push this legislation through. During today's OnPoint, Leon Panetta, chairman of the Pew Oceans Commission and co-chairman of the Joint Ocean Commission, outlines some of the major points made in the Joint Ocean Commission report that is being released today. Panetta also stresses the need for more cooperation between federal, state and local governments to address ocean issues.
