ICYMI: The battle over offshore drilling and the latest on GenX

If you missed it over the weekend, be sure to check out our interview with N.C. Department of Environmental Quality Secretary Michael Regan. Regan recently sat down with NC Policy Watch Executive Director Rob Schofield to discuss drilling off the Carolina Coast, the on-going effort to remove GenX from the Cape Fear, and his department’s relationship with the General Assembly.

(Editor’s note: Our interview was recorded prior to DEQ’s decision to issue a water quality permit for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline.)
