The NYSE-traded independent oil and gas producer's stock price, which has been steadily climbing, is up $1.06 Wednesday, to $44.29.

The state Senate is expected to vote Wednesday on Sen. Robert Adley’s S.B. 469, which would retroactively prevent levee boards from filing suit against the oil and gas industry.

Included in paid claims is a wireless phone company store that burned to the ground before the spill, an RV park foreclosed upon before the offshore disaster and a Pontiac dealer who could no longer sell Pontiacs because GM stopped making them.
