Katie Arrington set the record straight and released the following statement, while Joe Cunningham and the desperate DC democrats continue to try to mislead voters in South Carolina’s 1st Congressional District:
“I support the repeal of Barack Obama’s arbitrary restrictions on domestic energy exploration.
I do not support drilling for oil off of South Carolina’s coast.
While there are those who are using scare tactics to politicize this issue, the Trump Administration simply reversed the Obama Administration’s national policy. I believe states should have the final say on this issue; and, for South Carolina, nothing will change. I am not opposed to studying the issue, but we didn’t have an oil industry in our state before the Obama ban, and we won’t have one after the Obama ban.
My legislative record has been one of supporting free market alternative energy solutions and common-sense environmental legislation.”
