Legislative Alert: Thursday committee hearings on job-killing enviro bill, women’s sports protections

The New Mexico Legislature is in full-swing and these are some opportunities for you to get involved by supporting good legislation and opposing bad legislation. 

New Mexico Senate:

SENATE TAX, BUSINESS AND TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE
SENATOR BENNY SHENDO JR., CHAIRMAN Tuesday, February 25, 2021, 1:30 pm 

S.B. 11 (as amended) CLEAN FUEL STANDARD ACT by Sen. Mimi Stewart (D-Bernalillo) and Nathan Small (D-Doña Ana) – BAD (This is one of Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s legislative priorities).

This anti-business bill put forth by two anti-energy extremist legislators, would in the bill sponsors’ own words, “[require] fuel providers that refine, blend, make or import fuel used in New Mexico to gradually reduce the carbon intensity of the transportation fuel itself, we can reduce emissions by 4.7 million metric tons in carbon dioxide equivalent by 2040. That’s like taking 44,000 cars off the road every year for 15 years.” 

This bill would harm critical industries in New Mexico with expensive and punitive new regulations on the transportation of the fuels New Mexicans rely on to keep them driving and doing business. This bill has an appropriation of $1,210,000 for the 2022 fiscal year alone, with it gradually increasing annually.

H.B. 43 BLACK EDUCATION ACT by Rep. Sheryl Williams Stapleton (D-Bernalillo) and Sen. Harold Pope (D-Bernalillo) – BAD

This is a racist bill that would force public schools to institute sensitivity training, or “anti-racism” training, as well as mandatory Black culture curricula by changing the Public School Code.

The fiscal impact report reads: “It creates a New Mexico Public Education Department (PED) Black Education Liaison and a Black Education Advisory Council, and provides the powers and duties of these. It creates new sections in the Public School Code requiring racial sensitivity and anti-racism training or professional development for school personnel. It requires PED and the New Mexico Higher Education Department (HED) to cooperate in developing programs, curricula and instructional materials that recognize and teach Black culture and antiracism.”
