Governor McCrory Criticizes the Obama Administration’s Reversal on Offshore Energy

Raleigh, N.C.

Governor Pat McCrory, Chairman of the bipartisan Outer Continental Shelf Governors Coalition, issued the following statement on President Obama’s Reversal on Offshore Energy:
“President Obama’s total reversal can only be described as a special political favor to far-left activists that have no problem importing energy resources from countries hostile to the United States. What’s more troubling is the President is closing the door before he even knows what resources can be harnessed in an environmentally sound way. Unfortunately, the Obama administration’s deal could ultimately cost North Carolina thousands of new jobs and billions in needed revenue for schools, infrastructure, dredging and beach renourishment.”
