Just a Reminder

We are in a crisis in the Gulf of Mexico.  With that in mind it is important to look at the positions of the candidates for Governor on New Mexico's Pit Rule which protects precious  ground water from the oil and gas industry.

Here is what Susana Martinez says on her Facebook page.

"On local issues, Martinez took a hard stance on both the oil and gas and budding nuclear industries. 

“As governor, I would absolutely remove the Pit Rule as a regulation,” she said.

“Regulation that is imposed by the government has to be reduced. The folks in the oil industry are good stewards of the Earth. They take care of where they live. To continually regulate them is to regulate them out of the state.”

Here is what Diane Denish said on her web page.  

"Denish said alternatives to the pit rule are being considered, such as a "closed loop" system, which she said would render the pit rule obsolete."
