Q&A on BP's Stand on Future Compensation for Oil Spill Victims

TAMPA (2011-8-19) -

It's been more than a year since the oil stopped flowing from the Macondo well - site of the "Deepwater Horizon" disaster. But the debate continues over how much BP should have to pay for damages.

A few weeks ago, a letter sent by BP to the Gulf Coast Claims Facility said "claims for continuing damage" should be limited to a small minority of applicants whose businesses have yet to rebound. Craig Savage, BP's Florida spokesman, says they're not ruling out future payments. But he says the company also wants the improving situation in the Gulf to be considered.

Savage talks with WUSF's Carson Cooper.
