US Sen Tom Udall leads town hall on methane waste and oil and gas pollution
US Senator Tom Udall led a town hall conversation Tuesday night from the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum in Las Cruces.
More than 700 New Mexicans participated live in Las Cruces, on Facebook LIVE and in remove viewing locations in Albuquerque and Santa Fe.
Though connectivity problems inhibited some in Albuquerque and Santa Fe from asking questions live, voters in those locations also heard from local leaders and organizers from the Sierra Club about local actions to prevent the repeal of the federal Methane Rule as well as local actions to hold oil and gas companies accountable to pay public royalties to fund local schools and community programs.
If you missed the event, you can watch Sen. Udall’s presentation as well as a brief conversation with Northern New Mexico Rancher Don Schreiber.
