In Ybor City this afternoon, Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink addressed the continuing oil spill disaster emanating off the Louisiana coast.
"BP needs to be held totally responsible," she said to a few reporters after speaking at an Ybor Fire Station about Arson Awareness Week (the CFO is actually the state's fire marshal).
"They are the ones, they are the party responsible for the spill occurring," she said. "There are potentially billions of lost economic impact in the state of Florida alone. And we should aggressively get the smartest lawyers available to us insure that we get every dime back of the lost economic impact on people and businesses and also all the state lands that Floridians own that are at risk of getting destroyed if this oil spill does come ashore."
