The Albuquerque City Council is considering reversing their decision on the zero fares program launched in May 2021. We must urge city council members to commit to the program. In doing so we will ensure all households will benefit from the large-scale transit project and will have the necessary tools needed to get medical care, financial opportunity, and healthy alternatives. Make sure to email 📧 your City Councilor to express your support for Zero Fares for Burque!

“According to a study released today by the Center for Applied research, $8.1 billion will be needed to fill the gaps where existing financial bonds won’t cover the cost to fully clean-up and remediate over 60,000 wells, nearly 11,000 miles of pipeline, and other miscellaneous infrastructure…

EPA Announces Public Listening Sessions and Trainings on Upcoming Oil and Natural Gas Methane Rule | US EPA

For too long, communities on the frontlines of oil and gas development have been left out of decisions about what happens in their own backyards. Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency took an important step towards changing that by announcing a public engagement process as the agency begins crafting a new rule to tackle methane and associated pollution from new and existing oil and gas operations. Methane pollution from the oil and gas industry is fueling the climate crisis, and endangering the health and safety of communities across the country.

EPA’s rule-making is an opportunity for us to work together to #CutMethane from the oil and gas sector 65 percent by 2025, and we have to start by engaging those who have historically been excluded from this process. EPA's public engagement process is an important way to bring the most vulnerable communities into the fold to work together to #CutMethane.

Roughly 700 abandoned oil and gas wells are scattered throughout the San Juan and Permian basins, many of them posing environmental hazards and all marring the landscape. Federal funding has been proposed to plug 'orphaned wells' and remediate the sites. That would include stopping them from further contaminating air, groundwater and soil:

In case you needed motivation and good reason to get your #COVID19 vaccine, once NM gets to 60% full vaccination our state will reopen 100%. Get your appointment here: www.vaccineNM.org

As we continue to administer vaccines, we are weeks away from 60% of eligible New Mexicans being fully vaccinated, at which point the state will be able to safely graduate from the statewide map framework.

New Mexico has consistently led the nation in efficient vaccinations, and because of New Mexicans' hard work, we will be the first state guided by vaccination rates in safely and fully reopening.

Don't let your guard down just yet – but be proud, be encouraged, and get vaccinated!
