US govt angry that BP missed deadlines -Salazar

HOUSTON, May 23 (BestGrowthStock) – The U.S. government is
frustrated and angry that BP Plc (BP.L: ) has missed “deadline
after deadline” in its efforts to seal a blown-out oil well in
the Gulf of Mexico, U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said on
Sunday.

BP has agreed to pay cleanup costs beyond the $75 million
liability limit set by current U.S. law, Salazar told reporters
after visiting BP’s U.S. headquarters in Houston.

“If we find they’re not doing what they’re supposed to be
doing, we’ll push them out of the way appropriately,” Salazar
said.
