RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - In a show of bipartisan support for learning more about the resources that exist off the Mid-Atlantic coast, Gov. Pat McCrory is urging the federal government to approve seismic surveying. Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat, joined Republican McCrory in the letter.

McCrory is chairman of the Outer Continental Shelf Governors Coalition.

“New geological and geophysical surveys are necessary to provide the critical data required for informed exploration, development and environmental decisions,” wrote the governors. “Most seismic information for the Atlantic is more than three decades old.  With advanced seismic data collection and computer modeling, the industry will be better equipped to safely recover oil and gas resources and site offshore wind energy turbine generators.”

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - All North Carolina and U.S. flags have been lowered to half-staff until sunset on Thursday to honor the life and legacy of Congressman Howard Coble, who passed away earlier this week.

Coble was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1984 and represented North Carolina’s 6th Congressional District until earlier this year, when he retired from office.

"With the passing of Howard Coble, North Carolina not only lost a wonderful public servant and congressmen, but our state also lost a friend and mentor to so many, including myself," said Gov. Pat McCrory in a statement. "He was a friend who was genuine, hardworking, sincere and honest. We will all miss our friend, but we'll never forget him and the good things he did for our country, our state and so many of us individually. Ann and I will keep the Coble family in our prayers during this difficult time."

Ethics Commission Dismisses Complaint Against Gov. McCrory Filed By Liberal Advocacy Group PDF Print E-mail

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - A 585-page complaint filed against Gov. Pat McCrory by Progress NC Action has been dismissed, the governor's office announced on Wednesday.
The group had alleged a pattern of "ommissions and contradictions" in the governor's ethics forms.

The governor's statement is posted below.

“Earlier this year the liberal activist group Progress NC Action filed two complaints against me with the State Ethics Commission. They hired a lawyer to draft and file 585 pages of frivolous documents making malicious and unfounded attacks. I’m pleased to announce that the bipartisan Ethics Commission has dismissed each and every claim contained in those 585 pages.   
"This was never about ethics. It was about politics. For these groups, nothing is off limits as long as they believe it will further their clearly stated goal of 'eviscerating' me. Here, they even went after my brother, attempting to smear his name and the business he’s worked so hard to build.   
"Unfortunately, some media outlets are very receptive to these stunts, especially those who are always looking to 'raise questions' instead of finding answers.  This dismissal speaks for itself.  It’s a resounding answer to the 'questions raised' in these complaints.
"As a final note, the complaint process is designed to be confidential. This includes the initial complaint filed with the Commission. Progress NC Action ignored the confidentiality of this process because they wanted free publicity at the expense of the truth. Instead, they held a press conference on the front lawn of the Ethics Commission.  Had they respected the confidentiality of this process, I would have kept this dismissal confidential from inquiring reporters. However, we are well beyond that point. More than 1000 negative news stories and editorials helped publicize this smear campaign. The people of this state deserve to know that at the end of this long process, all these complaints were thrown out. I hope at least one news story restores the truth about the integrity, high values and respect I hold for this office. Unfounded negative attacks continue, but I will always fight to ensure that the truth comes to light.”
