Lujan Grisham to Respond to Biden Energy Failure with Rebates
Albuquerque – Larry Behrens, Communications Director for Power The Future, issued the following statement about the 2022 New Mexico Special Legislative session:
"As she prepares to spend millions in oil and natural gas revenue, now is the time for Governor Lujan Grisham to stand up to the Biden Administration's failed energy policies. While President Biden blames energy workers for his failures, it's those same energy workers who generate billions in revenue that allow for Governor Lujan Grisham's spending. It's past time the Governor stand up for her state."
