* Top Three Priority Legislation

Thanks to everyone who contacted a legislator or called into a hearing to help! This was a consequential session for climate and energy legislation with at least seven significant bills passing and signed by the Governor. Yes there were many more we wanted to pass, but this was hard fought and important progress. Note: on April 10th, the two 350NM & 350SF chapters hosted a panel discussion of climate and energy bills from the 2021 session, recorded here. It featured Sen. Antoinette Sedillo Lopez, Rep. Andrea Romero and Camilla Feibelman, Dir. Sierra Club Rio Grande chapter.
