MAYFLOWER, Ark. (AP) - The chair of the U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee joined Rep. Tim Griffin for a tour of the oil spill cleanup site at Mayflower.

Both said they believe ExxonMobil is doing everything possible to clean up the site.

Rep. Bill Shuster of Pennsylvania joined Griffin for the tour Sunday.



ExxonMobil Pipeline Co.'s Pegasus pipeline ruptured in Mayflower on March 29 and spilled thousands of barrels of oil. More than 20 homes were evacuated and many residents have yet to return.



Both Shuster and Griffin told The Associated Press after Sunday's tour that they believe ExxonMobil is doing everything possible to clean the area and to find what caused the pipeline to rupture and prevent that from happening again.
