    Oil spill called devastating for Suquamish Tribe
    Friday, January 16, 2004

    Washington state lawmakers held a hearing on Thursday to address an oil spill that damaged prized beachfront on the Suquamish Reservation.

    A spokesperson for the tribe said the 4,800-gallon oil fuel spill has been a "traumatic event" for tribal members. A tribal fishery and an area used for clam digging were destroyed on December 30.

    State Rep. Mike Cooper (D) said he would submit a bill requiring the use of oil-spill booms, which outside experts say could have prevented some of the damage. The tribe said it welcomed stricter rules.
