Easley Says Local Water Limits Possible If Drought Worsens

Governor Mike Easley says he has the power to limit water use in some towns and cities if the drought worsens.

Easley says such restrictions won't be needed as long as local governments keep working with the state to find emergency water supplies.

The governor also says he would work hard in his final full year in office to make state government run more efficiently and remain on track for his successor.

Easley is barred from seeking a third consecutive term as governor.
