Making the State Whole

June 15th, 2010 by flanews

Attorney General Bill McCollum isnt just going after BP to help fishermen and people who work in tourism hes also asking the oil giant to make the state whole.

McCollum meet with former Florida Attorneys General today to discuss how to get BP to pay for lost tax revenues and state money spend protecting the coast. McCollum says hes not looking for a fight.

I know and our team knows, that at the end of the day they owe everything. They are at fault. BP is the primary guilty party here without any question about it and we would like to believe that they would be up front and make those payments in a timely way, said McCollum.

The state is trying to track down the amount of state taxpayer dollars have been spent so far on the oil spill. If BP doesnt refund the state, McCollum says he will sue.
