Support Santa Fe County Commission Taking #ClimateAction
"The legislative session may not begin until January, but our work is well underway! Can you be present at the Santa Fe County Commission meeting on Tuesday, 12/11 and show your support for urgent climate action?
Show your support as the Commission considers a resolution brought by Anna Hansen, District 2 Commissioner to champion state legislation that reduces greenhouse gas emissions, increase renewable energy production, and prioritize water conservation. This is an action item, so there will be an opportunity for public comment.

It gives us great hope to see progressive elected leaders carrying legislation that aims to accomplish the most important work of our generation, confronting climate change.
The resolution is sixth on the agenda. We expect it to be heard at approximately 3PM. View the full agenda here.
The County's decision to invest in solar energy projects will free up money that would otherwise be used to pay PNM's electric bill for dirty energy, money that will be reinvested into vital community needs."
