Governor talks energy, infrastructure, Medicaid reform with President Obama

    News Release:

    Raleigh, N.C.     Governor Pat McCrory traveled to Washington, D.C. today along with a bipartisan group of four governors to meet with President Barack Obama and members of his cabinet. During the meetings, Governor McCrory talked about energy, infrastructure and Medicaid and thanked the president for U.S. Department of the Interior Secretary Sally Jewell's willingness to pursue energy exploration off the North Carolina coast.

    "It's always an honor to meet with the President. We had a very lengthy and intellectual discussion on issues like energy, infrastructure and Medicaid expansion," said Governor McCrory. "I stressed to President Obama that as we continue to consider reforming Medicaid, we want a North Carolina plan, not a Washington plan. The President listened, was receptive, and we had a respectful debate and conversation on many of the issues," continued McCrory.

    Governor McCrory is a member of the National Governors Association's Executive Committee. McCrory, along with NGA Chairman Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, NGA Vice-Chairman Utah Governor Gary Herbert, Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy and Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton were a part of the meeting. They met with Jason Furman, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, Shaun Donovan, director of the Office of Management and Budget, and Ambassador Michael Froman, U.S. trade representative.
