BP claims czar continues Gulf tour amid complaints

LAFITTE, La. (AP) - The administrator of BP's $20 billion oil spill claims fund continues his two-day swing across the Gulf Coast with visits to two southern Louisiana towns.
Attorney Kenneth Feinberg will meet with residents, business owners and fishermen in Lafitte and Houma on Tuesday.
Feinberg was greeted by angry claimants Monday in Mississippi and Louisiana who say they're not being compensated enough, or not at all, for BP's April oil well blowout that killed 11 workers and
spewed millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf.
He promised fairness, speed and more transparency in the process. Feinberg has been criticized for months for his administration of the Gulf Coast Claims Facility, which was set up to dole out BP's money to oil spill victims. He says he's doing the
best he can.
