Biden Hammers New Mexico & Other Western States


Recommended Posts

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — President Joe Biden’s 60-day moratorium on new oil and natural gas leases and drilling permits is prompting widespread concerns in New Mexico, where spending on education and other public programs hinges on the industry’s success.

Top Republicans in the state as well as local leaders in communities that border the Permian Basin — one of the most productive regions in the U.S. — say any moves to make permanent the suspension would be economically devastating for the state. Half of New Mexico's production happens on federal land and amounts to hundreds of millions of dollars in royalties each year.

Congressional members from other western states also are raising concerns, saying the ripple effects of the moratorium will hurt small businesses already struggling because of the pandemic.

“During his inauguration, President Biden spoke about bringing our nation together. Eliminating drilling on public lands will cost thousands of New Mexicans their jobs and destroy what’s left of our state’s economy,” Carlsbad Mayor Dale Janway told The Associated Press on Friday. “How does that bring us together? Environmental efforts should be fair and well-researched, not knee-jerk mandates that just hurt an already impoverished state.”

Oh, and be sure to wear a mask when you are on Federal Land. Biden's orders. 
Joe has been on the job 2 1/2 days. How are you liking him so far?

Time will tell...as an Independent I do not vote for the party...the party better win me over with protecting our interests first. But then again  " my interest may not correlate with yours. And this is the core of the problem, whose interests will Biden serve? Again time will tell. With as much diverse peoples that live here, and division any leader is set up for failure. I suppose we can always move and become American diaspora in another nation.

So if the previous administration hammered alaska by banning the pebble mine project which would have resulted in thousands of high paying jobs over 180 years, I just know you voted for Biden... didn't you?

OK, this topic is locked, sorry Slim but you turned your own topic into politics in your second, third and this quoted post, politics as we know isn't allowed on the forum,...but if what started as a discussion/information sharing on land use which is allowed had remained on topic I wouldn't have to lock it
