Governor calls for investigation into Titan dealings

Governor calls for investigation into Titan dealings
Published: 24 November 2009

Bowing to opponents of Titan America and an influential political watchdog, Gov. Bev Perdue called this week for an investigation into whether there was any wrongdoing involved in the state’s decision to issue the company a draft air permit and a pass on an environmental review.

The call comes just days after a Raleigh-based political watchdog, Joe Sinsheimer, prodded the governor to investigate whether there was any “undue political pressure” involved in Titan’s permitting process to build a plant in New Hanover County.

Sinheimer’s highly publicized remarks are reported to have flooded the governor’s office with calls from Titan opponents voicing similar concerns.
