New Orleans — While many will look at this as a surprise, many won’t when they hear that Congress hasn’t adopted any major laws on oil and gas drilling after the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history.

Despite introducing more than 150 bills to improve the safety and oversight of offshore drilling and holding more than 60 hearings to discuss the spill’s causes and consequences with regulators, oil company officials, grieving relatives and Gulf-area fishermen.

“Nothing has happened,” said Keith Jones, speaking by phone from his law office in Baton Rouge. “When oil was still gushing out of the Gulf, everybody wanted to do everything right, to do whatever they could to keep that from happening again. But that was then. Now, everybody is back to drilling more, making more money and not worrying about safety.
