Spill claims administrator Ken Feinberg to meet with Florida lawmakers

Kenneth Feinberg is expected to hear more complaints about payments being too slow, too low or both Friday when he appears before the House Economic Affairs Committee.

Feinberg’s been getting plenty of that kind of criticism during his travels along the Gulf Coast, but this week he also got a complaint of another kind from BP.

The British oil giant responsible for the spill caused by the explosion of its Deepwater Horizon rig last year says he’s being too generous with its money.

The company contends his methodology artificially inflates future expected losses from the spill.
