RALEIGH -- Governor Pat McCrory said he still has not made up his mind about whether he will sign a bill that would create a plan for Duke Energy to clean up coal ash ponds at power plants around the state. He says he has multiple reservations about the bill.

Governor McCrory said, "They changed the reporting relationship out of the environmental department to public safety, which makes no sense to me, whatsoever. They're basically telling me, as governor, which department to report things to, which I think is legislative overreach."

The governor was in Wilson, Tuesday, touting the plan for Dominion Resources, Duke Energy, and other partners to build a $5 billion natural gas pipeline to connect the Southeast with the prodigious supplies of natural gas being produced in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia. The 550-mile project will begin in Harrison County, West Virginia and stretch to Robeson County, North Carolina, in the southern part of the state.
