State of New Mexico Archives: on Environment


David Clements: Stop federal regulations which take over farming & property

Whether it's our world famous green chile, thriving pecan industry, dairies or cattle ranches, New Mexico has one of the most diverse agricultural economies in the country. Our state's farmers and ranchers represent the best in innovation, entrepreneurship and stewardship.

The future success of New Mexico farmers and ranchers are endangered, however, when the government seeks to take over agricultural production with needless, uninformed and often overly burdensome regulations.

Similarly, the government must respect the private property rights of farmers and ranchers and empower them to make decisions about the most productive use of their principal asset, which is their land. Decisions about how to run farms and ranches should not be made by out-of-touch bureaucrats in Washington.

Susana Martinez: Oversee natural resources to balance economy & environment

Protecting the environment and jump-starting our economy are not mutually exclusive goals. It is critical to New Mexico's future that thoughtful decisions based on science and common sense rather than political whims that circumvent the will of the people are made. I look forward to working with an Environmental Improvement Board that understands that we must balance economic growth with the need to preserve our state's natural beauty.
