PENSACOLA, Fla. - Florida's CFO Alex Sink is meeting with business owners in Pensacola to hear their concerns and fears concerning the impact of the oil spill.

She says this is "an emergency situation" and says emergency bridge loans should be made available to business owners in a way that's similar to what would occur after a hurricane.

Sink says she's twice asked Governor Crist to make this funding available and will ask again today.
