Column: Local leaders snubbed in debate over drilling

While federal governmental officials, environmentalists and oil companies are interested in whether large reserves of oil and natural gas exist off the S.C. coast, no one cares more than the people of South Carolina who live, work and raise families here. Many work in the tourism industry, which could be harmed if a drilling operation goes amuck as happened in 2010 when a drilling rig explosion spewed 200 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, crippling that area's tourism-based economy.
