The state of Florida has received $50 million from BP, $40 million of which was given to the Department of Environmental Protection. The IN has acquired documents that show how DEP spent the money.
Consultant Contracts on developing booming plans: $974,000
Escambia County: $1,458,000
Santa Rosa: $1,036,363
Total booming: $38,244,005
DEP: Five skimming vessels $609,000
Total spent by DEP: $39,827,005
RO Note: See how little Escambia County received even though we had the most impact from the BP disaster.
Also here is what the state agencies have spent on personnel, travel, equipment, other (which I assume is from the other $10M):
Emergency Mgmt: $1,163,346
Highway Safety: $31,639
Fish & Wildlife: $2,02,992
Mgmt Services: $8,826
National Guard: $717,000
