Congressman McIntyre clarified his comments to Save the Cape. He was talking about the ongoing Maritime Study - the $2 million study sponsored by the NC Department of Transportation. At the same time, he re-affirmed his opposition to this project, for all of the reasons he detailed in his June, 2010 statement.

His statement was incorrectly interpreted to suggest he was supporting a new $10 million Army Corps of Engineers Study. He was not.
