"Duke's got to take care of their responsibility, and they did some shoddy work," McCrory said. "They did some shoddy work with the dams, they did some shoddy work in communications and they did some shoddy work in the infrastructure underneath the dams.

"I'm going to have to fight them, from a constitutional standpoint, including even the coal ash commission," McCrory said. "I think this concept of creating commissions that are appointed by the legislature, the majority by the legislature, is unconstitutional, regardless of the subject. Because that means the legislature is doing the operations of state government, which is not their responsibility. I think there is a constitutional issue there."
