BP To Help Sponsor Sun Valley Confab

Oil giant British Petroleum (BP), while dealing with a massive oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico, is also sponsoring a legislative summit slated for September in Sun Valley.  The summit, officially known as the Council of State Governments-West (CSG-West), will bring together delegations of lawmakers from the 13 western states to discuss issues unique to the region. BP is the largest sponsor for the event, but it isn’t the only corporate sponsor.  The oil giant is the only Diamond Sponsor of the summit, meaning that the company has given $20,000 to CSG-West/Dustin Hurst, Idaho Reporter.

Question: Should the Council of State Governments-West, meeting in Sun Valley this September, refund BP’s money and wash its hands of the petroleum giant?
