With only a couple weeks left in her term, Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink urged her successor and other Cabinet members to keep BP's feet to the fire as individuals, businesses, and the state seek to recoup millions in damages from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the worst oil spill in U.S. history. A frequent critic of the Gulf Coast Claims Facility process headed by Ken Feinberg, Sink also urged the Legislature to consider ways to better protect citizens from future spills or other manmade disasters. "The BP oil spill will have a long-lasting impact on all Floridians," Sink said in a statement Tuesday. "I urge you to maintain close oversight of the GCCF protocol and process and continue to advocate for the Florida citizens who have suffered as a result of the Deepwater Horizon disaster."
