A much-anticipated meeting to smooth over tensions between Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and the drilling industry appeared to falter Monday as oil and gas executives, joined by Gulf state lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, described Mr. Salazar's visit to Houma, La., as all talk and little action.
BP and the Obama administration are discussing a possible settlement over fines for the company's massive Gulf of Mexico oil spill in an effort to avoid a costly legal fight that would delay that money from reaching the affected states, a congressman said Tuesday.
Weeks after the spill, a Landrieu spokesman said there were no plans to return the donations in response to an inquiry from the Center for Responsive Politics.
