Governors Ask Interior Nominee to Reconsider Atlantic Drilling
Posted by Jamie Hennigan on February 14, 2013
Today, North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, and Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell sent a letter to Interior Secretary Nominee Sally Jewell asking for a re-examination of the Administration’s policies towards energy exploration and production on the Atlantic Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). The Administration has continually blocked access to energy resources in Atlantic waters, and even canceled a previously approved lease sale off the coast of Virginia. According to the letter, energy production from the Atlantic OCS could create more than 140,000 new jobs within the next 20 years.
