BP Coughs up Cash

May 25th, 2010 by flanews

BP is making good on a promise to give the state 25 million dollars to try and offset the financial impacts of the oil spill in the gulf already affecting Floridas economy. Governor Charlie Crist brokered the deal with BP last week and today the company coughed up the cash. The money will be used to produce TV, Radio, Internet and Newspaper ads telling travelers that no oil has washed up on Floridas beaches and the coast is still open for business. Tourism officials say the money couldnt come quick enough because travelers have been canceling vacations all month.
