Congresswoman wants to spare New Mexico from Biden’s ban on oil and gas leases


New Mexico Republican Congresswoman Yvette Herrell is fighting Biden’s ban on new federal oil and gas land leases with a bill to exempt her state from the moratorium.

Rep. Herrell announced she was introducing the Protecting New Mexico’s Jobs and Public Education System Act  blocking the current order from affecting her home state.

She argued New Mexico stood to lose more than any other if a ban on oil and gas leases on federal land took effect reported the Carlsbad Current Argus.
