Oil Spill Roundup

BP expects to have the well completely sealed by this weekend.

The company announced the end of the Vessels of Opportunity program, in which local boaters and fishermen were employed to help contain the spill and clean up the oil, in Florida, Alabama and Mississippi.

The Interior Department has ordered drilling companies to cap all idle wells in the Gulf of Mexico.

Some observers say waning interest in the spill hurts Charlie Crist’s election chances.

BP denied Alabama’s claim for spill damages after the state sued the company.

The Department of Labor has provided a $2.5 million grant to help Western Panhandle residents cope with job losses.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation is giving banks a break on loan losses caused by the spill, and asking them to be lenient to customers in turn.

Florida Realtors are questioning whether they got paid enough by the separate compensation vehicle Kenneth Feinberg set up for their industry.

A judge overseeing some of the spill litigation said he expects BP to face thousands of lawsuits.

Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility has filed a lawsuit looking to find out how and why the government initially low-balled its estimates of the size of the oil spill.****

ProPublica examines some of the problems with Kenneth Feinberg’s oil spill claims process, and his plans for fixing them, including one fix called for recently by Gov. Charlie Crist and Chief Financial Alex Sink: hiring more claims adjusters.
