Meek Wants Another $75 Million from BP
“While I applaud your company's promise to make $25 million available to promote Florida tourism, it simply is not enough,” wrote Meek. “I am writing to request that you pledge an additional $75 million - the amount of money required by conservative estimates to run an adequate domestic and international marketing campaign. This type of ad campaign will cost at least $8 million a week.”
“In the wake of the oil spill, we need to double-down on these efforts in order to bring tourists back to our beaches,” added Meek.
