Take action: URGENT: Don't Let New Mexico Miss This Chance We need your help to get this legislation across the finish line by Saturday. After hundreds of EDF Action supporters flooded their inboxes with demands, New Mexico’s State Senate has taken a huge step: They voted to advance legislation that will finally close a dangerous loophole that allows the worst actors of the oil & gas industry to break the law — and put New Mexicans’ health and safety at risk. Meanwhile, the legislation also makes key improvements and clarifications to the state’s oversight of produced water from the oil and gas industry. Now, we need to make sure that a conference committee supports these improvements and keeps this bill moving towards the Governor’s desk. Don’t let New Mexico miss this chance: Take action today, and ensure the State House and Senate leaders keep this crucial momentum. Message Time is running out: Please ensure HB 546 is approved and on the Governor's desk by Saturday at Noon Dear Speaker Egolf and Majority Leader Wirth, * Personalize your message I'm writing today extremely concerned about the health and safety of New Mexico communities. The number of oil and gas-related spills increased nearly 100% since 2008, and more than 500% since 2000, but industry paid $0 in penalties this past year because of a legal loophole. With oil and gas development rapidly increasing in New Mexico, we must ensure the state's regulators have the tools they need to do their job. This bill creates a level playing field and ensures that oil and gas is held to the same standard as other industries in New Mexico. It is crucial that the conference committee and both houses approve this bill, in order to allow the state to finalize the closure of this dangerous loophole and help industry to break their addiction to fresh water while clarifying agency authority over the use of oil and gas wastewater. Our families and communities are counting on your leadership.
