"I am excited for the opportunity to stand up for my constituents who have been railroaded by reckless, one-size-fits all executive actions by this administration.

I am proud to champion New Mexico's legacy of environmental stewardship and lead Republican members on the Environment Subcommittee."
"Representative Herrell is a leader on energy and environment issues, and we are thrilled to have her serve as the Republican Leader on the Environment Subcommittee," said Ranking Member Comer.

The Biden Administration has waged war on domestic energy production and Representative Herrell is fighting to protect the Americans whose jobs and livelihoods rely on this industry. We look forward to Representative Herrell leading our oversight of the Biden Administration's radical Green New Deal policies that are harming Americans nationwide."
