Oil spill administrator makes another Coast visit
Published: January 17,2011
GULF COAST — The administrator of BP’s $20 billion oil spill claims fund returns to the Gulf Coast this week amid increasing complaints that the program is failing to compensate many in need.
Attorney Kenneth Feinberg will meet tomorrow with residents, business owners and fishermen in Bayou La Batre and Orange Beach along the Alabama coast. He heads to the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday.
Last week, Feinberg was greeted in Mississippi and Louisiana by angry claimants who say they’re not being compensated enough, or not at all, for BP’s April oil well blowout that killed 11 workers and spewed millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf.
Feinberg has repeatedly promised fairness and more transparency in the process and says he’s doing the best he can given the more than 470,000 requests for money.
