New Mexicans Can Sign Petition Against Regressive Energy Law Written by Out-Of-State Radical Environmental Groups

SANTA FE - New Mexicans will now have a voice in repealing the controversial Energy Transition Act (ETA.) On Thursday, Power The Future launched EnergyTransitionTruth.Com which allows New Mexicans to sign a petition to let their elected leaders know that our state will not tolerate the job-killing policies that harm not only our families but also entire communities.

“The law was written and supported by radial environmental groups who don’t care about our jobs or our state’s economy,” said Larry Behrens, Western States Director for Power The Future. “New Mexicans deserve to determine their energy future without the regressive eco-left and their out-of-state brokers getting insider access.”

1. "TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT" -- DEMS IGNORE BIPARTISAN SHERIFFS' INPUT AND PUSH ANTI-2ND AMENDMENT "RED FLAG" BILL

Late last week in a secretive meeting in Santa Fe, Democrats signaled their intent to revive the anti-2nd Amendment "red flag" law to confiscate guns from citizens without due process. Democrats feigned their "disappointment" that the sheriffs weren't in attendance to offer their input publicly when in reality the members of the NM Sheriffs' Association weren't even invited.

From the Santa Fe New Mexican:

State Rep. Daymon Ely is moving forward with a plan to propose so-called red-flag gun legislation without modifying it based on criticism from state sheriffs, saying an attempt to compromise with them has failed....

Legislation allowing for “extreme risk protection orders” would let law enforcement obtain a court order to remove guns from people considered dangerous. Ely and Rep. Joy Garratt, D-Albuquerque, proposed a bill in the last session that cleared the House but wasn’t taken up in the Senate.

ALBUQUERQUE, NM —Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman Steve Pearce released the following statement in response to the Republican National Committee’s resolution in support of President Trump and the Graham-McConnell resolution:

“Today, the RNC Executive Committee unanimously passed a resolution supporting President Trump and the Graham-McConnell resolution condemning the secretive, illegitimate impeachment inquiry being conducted by House Democrats. Every American, including our President, has the right to the due process. The closed-door impeachment proceedings being conducted are contradictory to those rights. While House Democrats waste time on baseless impeachment inquiries, President Trump is working for the people and delivering outstanding results for New Mexicans. I applaud his dedication to the American people.”

1.TRUMP ECONOMY - NEW MEXICANS BENEFIT FROM STRONG EMPLOYMENT GROWTH

Under President Trump’s leadership, the economy continues to thrive. New Mexico job growth in 2019 rose to 2.4 percent. Just another example of PROMISES MADE, PROMISES KEPT!

New Mexico outpaced the national job growth rate on a per capita basis based on data recently posted by the U.S. Department of Labor and the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions.

1. GOVERNOR LUJAN GRISHAM IS RECRUITING FAR-LEFT PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRATS

Several Democrat Senators in New Mexico who stood against their party leaders to defend life and opposed HB 51, a bill decriminalizing abortion laws, are now being challenged in primary elections. Gov. Lujan Grisham is recruiting candidates who agree with her on extreme policies. Yet another example of how the Gov. is trying to push her far-left agenda across the state.

From the Albuquerque Journal:

Democrat Siah Correa Hemphill, a school psychologist, plans to run against state Sen. Gabriel Ramos next year — one of several primary challenges facing Senate Democrats.

1. GOV. LUJAN GRISHAM MAKES UNREALISTIC EMISSIONS PROPOSAL; HURTS WORKING PEOPLE

Last Tuesday, Gov. Lujan Grisham announced plans for New Mexico to adopt stricter vehicle emission standards. Yet again, she is trying to make state rules to appeal to a national audience, not N.M. residents. Gov. Lujan Grisham wants to increase average fuel economy to 52 mpg on 2022 models, which even exceeds the Obama-era standards.

From KOB4:

Officials with the Republican Party of New Mexico are criticizing Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s plan to cut greenhouse emissions caused by cars...

ALBUQUERQUE, NM —Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman Steve Pearce released the following statement in response to today’s announcement from the U.S. Forest Service lifting the suspension of sales of fuelwood permits:

“Today’s announcement lifting the suspension of fuelwood permits only addresses one of the four main problems created by the U.S. district court judge who made a ruling against the U.S. Forest Service and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The ruling continues to kill jobs New Mexico desperately needs, puts our wonderful forests more at risk of being destroyed by fire, disease or pests and makes the habitat worse when forests are not maintained. The best laboratory to compare habitats for spotted owls is where the Mescalero Forest which has been thinned joins the Lincoln National Forest which has not been thinned. The spotted owls are moving from the U.S. forests to the thinned areas.

“I will continue to work with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to ensure the suspensions are resolved. I have asked USDA to file an appeal as soon as possible and to review the defense submitted to the court by the N.M Director of the United States Forest Service. I have also asked Secretary Perdue and other agency officials to visit N.M. to review the situation.”

SANTA FE, NM—Reps. Gail Armstrong (R-Magdalena) and Rebecca Dow (R-Truth or Consequences) released the following statement in response to a recent order issued by U.S. District Judge Raner Collins directing the U.S. Forest Service to cease all timber management activities on all national forest in New Mexico as well as the Tonto National Forest in Arizona pending formal consultation regarding the Mexican Spotted Owl. The judicial directive was issued as part of an ongoing lawsuit brought by WildEarth Guardians, a Santa Fe-based environmental group.

“This is yet another example of judicial overreach. Most of us are interested in balanced conservation measures that care for our wildlife and the habitat they live in. There is nothing balanced about this ruling.
