Attorney General Eric Holder is headed to the Gulf Coast today to see areas affected by the oil spill.

And he'll be meeting with attorneys general from Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi, along with several U.S. attorneys.

Several senators have asked the Justice Department to look at whether criminal or civil laws were broken in the spill.

The Justice Department has told Sen. Barbara Boxer that it has ordered BP not to destroy documents that could be relevant in an investigation.

In Washington, meanwhile, President Barack Obama will be holding his first meeting with the two chairmen he appointed to lead an independent panel investigating the oil spill.
