Gov. McMaster visits Beaufort County
Gov. Henry McMaster paid a visit to Beaufort County on Wednesday to talk business.
McMaster was the speaker at a luncheon hosted by the Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce. . . .
Mare Deckard of Cast Away Fishing Charters asked McMaster about proposed seismic testing for oil off the South Carolina coast.
Deckard was relieved by the governor’s answer.
“I’m against it,” McMaster said.
The Trump administration recently made a move toward allowing the testing to search for oil and natural gas. The public has until July 6 to comment at itp.laws.noaa.gov.
