Posted on Thursday, October 31st, 2013 at 3:56 pm
Manatee County in Florida is applying for $70 million from the BP oil spill case, but it expects to receive much less. Manatee County Natural Resources Department director Charlie Hunsicker said the county expects to receive between 4 and 15 million. The county plans to use the funds for restoration and conservation of the water habitat.
BP is required to pay fines and restitution costs reaching $18 billion as the U.S. District Court in New Orleans continues trying thousands of lawsuits against BP.
