    Vitter Pushes for BP Bailout Bill in Senate - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

    U.S. Senator David Vitter asked for unanimous consent to pass legislation that protect BP and other oil companies by limiting their financial liability for oil spills and potentially leaves taxpayers on the hook for the cost of cleaning up the damage. Vitter's request was met with objection and did not pass.



    On the Senate floor, Vitter claimed that BP has said they are willing to pay more than his bill would require, but the oil corporation has been vague on their financial commitment. Under questioning from Senator Mary Landrieu last week, a BP executive committed to pay all "legitimate claims."
