In his latest press conference on the status of the response to the winter storm, he said he was not satisfied and, "I'm not going to look for a scapegoat. I'm the governor. The buck stops with me, I accept the responsibility for it."
Deal went onto say that his office will be working on improving their response and correcting the errors made. He also thanked all the school officials and people working on the roadways for their assistance during the disaster.
