AG Strange in Etowah

Businesses in Etowah County might be several hundred miles away from the Gulf Coast, but they might qualify for funds being paid out because of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. That’s what Attorney General Luther Strange told members of the Gadsden/Etowah County Chamber Wednesday. Strange said the entire state was included in the settlement because all of Alabama was affected by a drop in tourism and a loss of revenue. He urges businesses to go to the settlement website to find out if they have money coming to them.
