April 20th will mark the one year anniversary of the oil spill that devastated the Gulf of Mexico. In the end, more than 170 million gallons of crude gushed into the gulf, making it the worst spill in U.S. history. A year later, the long term impact to the environment remains unclear. But the economy, according to residents from Florida to Louisiana took a wallop. And people affected want compensation and they want it now. The owner of the well, BP, admitted responsibility and agreed to set up a 20 billion dollar fund to compensate the victims. The man you’re about to meet is in charge of handing out all that money.
