On Energy & Oil: A healthy environment and a strong economy not in conflict

Our tax credits and clean car rules are strengthening our position as a clean energy state. We have cut pollution from the oil and gas industry in half compared to our neighbors in Texas, and our methane rules were recently adopted by the federal government as the standard for smart regulation. We are demonstrating that a healthy environment and a strong economy are not in conflict, offering a new model--the New Mexico model--for states like ours across the country.

On Gun Control: Ban assault weapons; raise purchase age for all guns to 21

I am calling for a gun safety package that bans assault weapons, raises the legal purchase age for all guns to 21, institutes a 14-day waiting period, increasing penalties for felons in possession of a firearm, keeps guns out of parks and playgrounds, and allows law enforcement officers to file Extreme Risk Protection Orders to keep firearms away from people who are a danger to themselves or others. These are common-sense measures that will save lives.

On Health Care: Requests additional Medicaid funding & Hospital Provider Tax

I am requesting another $100 million dollars for the Rural Health Care Delivery Fund, additional Medicaid funding so our providers can meet growing demands, and a Hospital Provider Tax, which will bring in an additional $1.5 to $2 billion into the state, shoring up our health care delivery system, without costing patients or providers a dime. New Mexicans should never have their lives or livelihoods threatened by insurance companies that are more determined to make a dollar than a difference.
