The Governors of Texas and Oklahoma have stepped up to protect their state’s energy jobs after President Biden issued an executive order to eliminate fracking on federal land

Yet Michelle Lujan Grisham is refusing to lift one finger to protect the 65K New Mexico jobs and $1.1 billion in revenue for the state school system reliant on energy production on government land.

New Mexico needs Lujan Grisham to stand up for students and workers.

"Students are falling behind and families are struggling as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, yet Governor Lujan Grisham is only exacerbating the problem by refusing to fight Biden's destructive environmental agenda," said RGA Spokesman Will Reinert. "If Michelle Lujan Grisham can't muster the courage to take action on behalf of New Mexico teachers, students and energy workers, you can't trust her to put your needs first."
