McCrory Going Back To DC, Meeting US Energy Chief

RALEIGH, N.C. North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory is returning to Washington to attend a workforce development meeting and talk about natural gas and oil exploration with a member of President Barack Obama's Cabinet.


McCrory's visit Wednesday with Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz follows up on a brief meeting the governor had with Obama when he came to Raleigh last month.


The governor wants to talk with Moniz in part about allowing seismic testing off the coast to measure potential oil and natural gas. McCrory is expected to be the next chairman of a coalition of governors who want to expand energy exploration. McCrory says the energy sector could generate more jobs.


Prior to meeting Moniz, McCrory plans to attend a workforce task force meeting by the National Association of Manufacturers.
