New laws proposed in Louisiana would extend filing deadlines, nullify settlements concerned with the BP oil spill and investigate the long-term health effects of the spill and clean up.

House Bill 389, proposed by Rep. Patrick Connick (R-Marrero) would retroactively nullifying  “all settlements and release entered into on or after April 20, 2010,” should an oil spill victim suffer medical problems because of the spill or the dispersants used in the cleanup.

House Concurrent Resolution 48, proposed by Truck Gisclair (D-Larose), requests the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals to investigate the health effects of the oil spill, the cleanup, and how residents are supposed to protect their health for the long-term.

Senate Bill 184 aims to push filing deadlines for lawsuits or any other legislation pertaining to the BP oil spill to 2021.

Louisiana is working hard to recover as much in damages as possible from BP and other companies responsible for the Deepwater Horizon explosion and the related oil spill, including Halliburton and Transocean. disclaimer: This article: New Laws Proposed For BP Oil Spill was posted on Tuesday, May 10th, 2011 at 8:08 pm at and is filed under Toxic Substances Lawsuits.
