BP (NYSE:BP) is being asked to pay another $75 million from Louisiana for their tourism industry. BP has already paid out $15 billion to that end.
Louisiana Lt. Gov. Scott Angelle wrote in a letter to BP's general manager of governmental and public affairs, Larry Thomas, saying after a perception study, it was found that the state was still being "constrained by negative national perception."
The perception he was talking about was in relationship to tourism and seafood from the state as it is allegedly perceived to be affected by the oil spill in the Gulf.
Angelle claims the two brands are "inextricably linked," and so both need to be mitigated.
These so-called negative perceptions need to more money to battle, according to Angelle.
