Governor Pat McCrory says he plans to sign a bill to manage North Carolina’s coal ash ponds. But he may also challenge a key part of it.
The governor played a role this summer when members of the House and Senate were crafting the plan. He made suggestions of his own on what to do with Duke Energy's 100 million tons of coal ash.
The bill is now on his desk. Over the weekend, on the talk show NC Spin, his support for it was cautious.
