The harebrained idea to dam the Gila River and tributaries will give a new definition to 'Gila Monster.' Close to a billion dollars, environmental destruction, and profits for a few farmers will be the result of this Susana Martinez sponsored boondoggle. And to top it off, the data that the Interstate Stream Commission is using to justify this project is being kept under lock and key with no peer review. It is insane! Right up there with the Keystone pipeline project that will take the world's dirtiest form of fossil fuel, tar sands, and pipe it through the USA from Canada to Houston for export.
I call on Senators Heinrich and Udall to continue running interference from the federal level on these destructive and future killing projects.
