Topsail Beach commissioners oppose offshore oil drilling
TOPSAIL BEACH, NC (WWAY) — A second beach town in Pender County votes to show their opposition to offshore drilling off their coastal waters.
Topsail Beach Town Commissioners voted 3 to 2 opposing offshore oil drilling.
The Trump administration scaled back Obama era regulations, opening up the Atlantic Coast to possible search and operations for oil.
The commission joins Surf City in opposing the practice.
Town leaders said Pender County leaders have not taken a stance on the issue.
