Sunday News: Bill Cook can go suck a lemon

COOK CONCERNED ABOUT DEQ NOMINEE (Elizabeth City Daily Advance) — State Sen. Bill Cook, R-Beaufort, said Friday he so far doesn’t have major concerns with Gov. Roy Cooper’s cabinet picks – except for his pick to run the Department of Environmental Quality. Cook said Regan is the only Cooper appointment he has concerns with so far, noting the nominee’s advocacy for wind and solar power. Cook has favored legislation reducing a renewable energy mandate and other supports for the industry, siding with some Republicans who say those policies ultimately drive up energy costs.
