Louisiana House Speaker Jim Tucker says BP has done a good job covering the costs of the oil spill cleanup. That's been a big concern for many state lawmakers because of the state's current budget crisis.

Tucker says it's crucial that the state and local governments do a good job of keeping track of all spill related costs. The state legislative auditor's office is reviewing payments for coastal parishes so they can be billed properly.

BP is responsible for all cleanup costs under federal law.
