6/21/2010

CONTACT: Jerri Franz or Jayme O’Rourke, 850-413-2842
 
TALLAHASSEE – Florida CFO Alex Sink today published a special edition of her Consumer eViews newsletter to offer impacted small businesses in Florida information on how to deal with the effects of the BP oil spill, including how to file a claim and how to prepare should oil be brought inland with a hurricane this storm season. Floridians can access the special eViews newsletter by clicking here: http://www.myfloridacfo.com/PressOffice/Newsletter/SpecialBulletin/June_2110.htm.
 
“Floridians have so many questions, and with information available on a number of websites and in different forms, this is a special bulletin to help our employers and small businesses find the information they need easily and get help as soon as possible,” said CFO Sink. “Whether you need an emergency loan, are looking for one of the Gulf oil recovery jobs, or need to know how to file a claim with BP, the information in our special bulletin will help navigate the assistance that has become available.”
 
CFO Sink also reiterated her commitment to hold BP accountable for all damages incurred as a result of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
 
“Please be assured that I will continue standing up for our small businesses and coastal communities and will not stop until impacted Floridians finally receive the assistance – and reimbursements – they deserve,” CFO Sink continued.
