Legislators Hear About Off-Shore Drilling Along NC Coast

Since the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, talk about off shore drilling along our coastline is heating up.

And when the North Carolina General Assembly convenes today, a special committee will reveal their findings on the economic and environmental costs to drilling.

Just last week, the Interior Department indefinitely, canceled hearings on the proposed sale of gas and oil leases off the coast of Virginia.

The hearings were to be held in Norfolk, North Carolina and Maryland.

Back in March, President Obama decided to expand exploration for oil along the Atlantic seaboard.
