BP Prodded to Expedite Claims

WASHINGTON (AP) - The government is pushing BP to work faster getting money to people and businesses harmed by the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen didn't hesitate when asked what BP is not doing that they need to get better at. He says BP needs to improve its performance in the damage claims department.

Allen says the oil giant is starting to make partial payments to individuals but that needs to become more routine so that people can count on it.

Business claims are more complicated, requiring much more paperwork and processing and BP is bringing in outside help.
