[ACT NOW] Time is running out for your comments to save our National Monuments

Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke said in testimony yesterday that he would come to New Mexico and see first-hand areas within at least one of the state’s two National Monuments his department is reviewing. I thank @MartinHeinrich for the invitation to see #NewMexico on horseback. Looking forward to it. — Secretary Ryan Zinke (@SecretaryZinke) June 20, 2017

The DOI is reviewing the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument and Rio Grande del Norte National Monument because of spurious claims that President Obama overreached his authority when designating both areas under the Antiquities Act.

Senators Udall & Heinrich can’t do this alone: Tell Sen McCain and Heller to stand up for clean air in the west

This tax season, we should be finding ways to save taxpayer dollars, not giving the oil and gas industry a pass to waste our money and pollute our air. We need our elected officials to stand up for us, not for the multi-billion dollar oil and gas industry. Drillers in western states dump millions of tons of methane – a greenhouse gas more powerful than CO2 and dangerous to the air we breathe – into our air each year. Like other mineral royalties in the west, drillers are supposed to pay royalties on the public resources they drill – but they don’t pay if they vent it into the air.  

An Obama-era rule required them to cap the leaks and stop venting public resources and royalties they owe us.

The overwhelming response from those in attendance and the legislators who spoke in the rotunda: Not in New Mexico.

Pledge to stand with Sens. Udall, Heinrich against these Trump’s nominees

Donald Trump’s nominees are a who’s who of conflicts, billionaires and bigots and each one must be confirmed by the United States Senate.

Democrats have already given many a grilling and slowed the quick nomination processes Trump and Republican Senate leaders wanted. Our own US Senators have been front and center of those fights. Here are just a few whose appointment could mean big trouble for New Mexico.

Sen. Martin Heinrich, Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham, AG Balderas, ABQ Mayoral candidates to headline ProgressNow Progressive Summit

Albuquerque – More than 300 elected officials, community organization leaders and progressive activists will convene on Saturday at the New Mexico Progressive Action Summit for New Mexico’s largest day of political action. The one day event, hosted by ProgressNow New Mexico, pairs elected officials and community members/voters to develop policies and bills to be introduced at the legislature and in local governments statewide. US Senator Martin Heinrich will provide the opening keynote address and Attorney General Hector Balderas will welcome attendees.  Other headline events include a welcome from Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham and a Albuquerque Mayoral Candidate Forum where each candidate will present a five-minute “TED talk-style” speech on the topic of “My big idea to change Albuquerque.” This will be the first time declared candidates and persons considering running will be featured together ahead of 2017’s mayoral election.

This holiday season, give the gift that fights Donald Trump

As this crazy year comes to a close, I asked our staff to look back at all the work we’ve all accomplished together to build a new progressive majority for New Mexico.  While most other states are licking their wounds and trying to figure out what they did wrong, we have a lot to be proud of. I get to see it up close every day, but even I was surprised to see it in one place. Once I saw what you had done through ProgressNowNM I knew you’d want to see too. We aren’t just building a new voice for the progressive movement – you ARE the voice of our movement and I have the data to prove it.
