McCrory among 3 govs that want offshore oil drilling

Posted: Updated:

Governor Pat McCrory is teaming up with other governors to begin offshore drilling.  
And he's hoping the federal government will join in.

McCrory made that clear in a letter to President Obama's administration. Virginia governor Bob McDonnell and South Carolina governor Nikki Haley are both on board.
They want the administration to revise its current policy to one committed to taking advantage of our natural resources, as long as we do it safely.
The governor says energy production off our shores would create 140,000 jobs over the next 20 years.

Coming up Monday, McCrory will deliver the State of the State Address at 7 p.m.
