Sen. Mark Pryor Pryor Tours Pegasus Pipeline Site in Arkansas

Apr 30, 2013

Senator Mark Pryor made a visit to Arkansas Monday and toured the site of the Pegasus Pipeline oil spill in Mayflower. It was the Senator's first visit to the site since the Exxon-owned pipe ruptured a month ago, spilling a type of crude oil into a nearby neighborhood.

THV 11 was not allowed to go along on the tour, but Pryor said he got a chance to speak with the affected residents. He's looking into ways he can help as officials from Exxon and the city clean up the mess.
