Joint Letter from Governor Charlie Crist and Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink to Ken Feinberg

9/15/2010

Read the attached letter from Governor Charlie Crist and Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink to Ken Feinberg, claims administrator for the Deepwater Horizon Compensation Fund, requesting immediate action be taken to address the concerns Floridians have regarding the BP oil spill claims process.

The letter emphasizes the need for the claims process to become seamless and simple, including completing individual claims within three to five days and relying on the federal Oil Pollution Act of 1990 as the standard for evaluating all claims. The letter additionally requests the claims process be modified so that average citizens and small businesses alike can file claims without the help of legal counsel.
