Attorney Kenneth Feinberg, who is overseeing the Gulf Coast Claims Facility, has faced complaints from angry residents and business owners that the fund is moving too slowly, is not being generous enough and is denying claims that should be paid.

Feinberg says that the process is fluid and that he understands the concerns.

On Monday, he announced a more lenient program that would not rule out claims simply because claimants are not located on the coast.

The April 20 rig explosion killed 11 workers and spewed more than 200 million gallons of oil from BP PLC's underwater well.
