McCrory Details Talks During trip To Washington

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory says he asked President Barack Obama and some of his Cabinet questions about issues he's concerned about during a visit to Washington -- but didn't always get the full answer he wanted.

McCrory attended his first National Governors Association meetings over the weekend and planned to come home Monday.

McCrory said in an interview he asked Obama during a meeting earlier Monday with other governors about prospects for expanding offshore energy exploration in the Atlantic. The governor said he was told the issue was being studied but didn't get an answer about when the study would be complete.

McCrory also said he asked Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius about operating waivers for Medicaid to save the state money, but waiver parameters sound narrow.
