(AP) BP PLC says the Jindal administration has misrepresented its record in the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill, including how much it has spent on cleanup.


BP spokesman Geoff Morrell responded Thursday to comments made a day earlier by Gov. Bobby Jindal and his top coastal official, Garret Graves, during and after a meeting of the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council.


The council approved a plan for using 80 percent of BP's as-yet-to-be-determined Clean Water Act fines to help restore the Gulf.


Jindal said BP has focused too much on its image and needs to turn its attention to covering restoration costs. Morrell said suggestions that BP has failed to address the clean-up of Louisiana's coastline is false and irresponsible.
