Please attend if you can!
Marita, and New Mexico, needs more people to attend the public comment sessions on Tuesday evening, and subsequent evenings.
has been rumored that Governor Richardson will try to jam this through - even
by Executive Order - before he leaves office.
New Mexicans simply cannot afford to let that happen!
The meetings are being held at the new PERA building in Santa Fe from 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM each evening.
If you are able to attend the public comment sessions, call Marita at (505) 239-8998
While cap and trade
may have breathed its last breath in Washington, proponents are still
fighting for a job-killing, energy-cost-increasing, New-Mexico-only
carbon cap (Case no. EIB 08-19). There will be a hearing where the
public can voice their opinion on August 16 at 10:00 AM
in Santa Fe. It is important that those who oppose the regulation be
present. Public comment matters. You do not need to be an "expert" and
you do not need to give a speech, but you should be prepared to simply
stand up and state "I oppose the NEE green house gas cap petition."
Based on the history of past hearings, you should plan to be there all
day and the hearings may continue for several days. (If you cannot make
it on the 17th but can make it on the 18th, please call or text
Marita at 505.239.8998 to determine if the hearings are still going on.)
If you cannot
attend, you are still encouraged to voice your opinion via e-mail.
Additional information on the proposed climate change regulations and
instructions for submitting comments can be found on the Energy Makes America Great Facebook Fan Page.
The Environmental Improvement Board is stacked
with members hand-picked by Governor Richardson who are likely to
support the proposal, despite opposition by a broad-based coalition of
businesses throughout the state. Additionally, several of the board
members have severe conflict of interest issues. The Rio Grande
Foundation has done extensive work looking into the conflicts.
Please mark the date on your calendar and plan to be there!
