Bill McCollum puts BP claim czar on the spot

With the authority to dole out $20 billion to BP oil-spill victims, Kenneth Feinberg has yet to provide exact details about who gets money and who doesn't.

But the few specifics Feinberg has mentioned are drawing fire from Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum, a Republican running for governor.

McCollum said he was concerned that Feinberg was using an overly strict interpretation of Florida law that he could use to deny claims.

Feinberg, however, said he's not trying to restrict payouts.

``I am not adversarial to anyone in Florida,'' Feinberg said. ``I want Floridians to get what is due them. I am working at their side to help them. And this money is going to be distributed for them.''
