from the Boston globe.The governor and mayor asked attorney Kenneth R.
Feinberg to oversee One Fund Boston. Feinberg oversaw compensation funds for
victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, and the Virginia Tech shootings as well
as the endowment from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Feinberg will determine
who will be eligible for payouts from the fund and how much each person
deserves. All of the money will go to bombing victims, none to administrative
costs, officials said.“Every time I do this, I say to myself,
‘Well, hopefully that will be the last time,’ and it just
isn’t the last time,” Feinberg said Tuesday during a news conference
to highlight the procedures for distributing the money. “Bad things happen
to good people everyday.”Feinberg said he was ordered to
ensure all the money is distributed with as little “fuss or red
tape” as possible. People who think they might be eligible -- someone
injured in the blasts or relatives who lost a loved one -- can expedite the
process by registering online at onefundboston.org or by calling 855-617-3863
beginning at noon Wednesday.
