(MCGOWAN):
"THE NATURAL-GAS- AND OIL-INDUSTRY IS VITAL TO OUR STATE:  IN 2015, THE NATURAL-GAS- AND OIL-INDUSTRY SUPPORTED MORE THAN 140-THOUSAND JOBS, IN NORTH CAROLINA; IT ALSO PROVIDED ABOUT SEVEN-BILLION DOLLARS IN WAGES, AND CONTRIBUTED MORE THAN 13-BILLION DOLLARS TO THE STATE'S ECONOMY.  WITH THE 'DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY' NOW OFFICIALLY SEEKING PUBLIC INPUT ON THE POTENTIAL IMPACTS OF EXPLORATION AND DEVELOPMENT ON COASTAL AREAS, IT BEARS REPEATING THAT EXTENSIVE, COORDINATED SAFETY-IMPROVEMENT EFFORTS--FROM INDUSTRY AND GOVERNMENT-REGULATORS--HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFUL.  AND, WHILE WE'RE ALREADY ENJOYING THE LOW GAS-PRICES THAT HAVE BEEN MADE POSSIBLE BY SURGING PRODUCTION, FULLY PARTICIPATING IN AMERICA'S 'ENERGY REVOLUTION'--THROUGH DEVELOPING OUR OFFSHORE RESOURCES--COULD BRING EVEN-GREATER BENEFITS.  WE ALL VALUE THE TOURISM- AND FISHING-INDUSTRIES--AND THEIR CRITICAL CONTRIBUTIONS TO OUR WAY-OF-LIFE.  OPENING THE ATLANTIC TO SAFE DEVELOPMENT REPRESENTS AN OPPORTUNITY TO DIVERSIFY OUR ECONOMY, CREATE JOBS, AND CONTRIBUTE TO ENERGY-SECURITY--WITHOUT IMPACTING OTHER CRITICAL-SECTORS OF OUR ECONOMY."
