SB-312 Clean Renewable Energy Bill Status
80% by 2040.
Renewable Energy Requirements For Utilities.
Our bill requiring 80% clean renewable electricity by 2040
SB312 Cleared its First Hurdle in the NM Legislature (6-3!) on Feb 28
Where is it?
SB-312 did not pass Friday’s (Mar 10) hearing in the Senate Corporations & Transportation committee. It failed on a 3-5 vote – Democratic Senators Clemente Sanchez (Grants) and Mary Kay Papen (Las Cruces) voted with the three Republicans to defeat the bill.
What Should I Do?
Now we’ll regroup, learn from this year’s fight and apply those lessons to our next steps, because we WILL introduce this bill again and ultimately get it passed. And finally, a special thanks to our bill sponsors, Senator Mimi Stewart and Representative Nathan Small!
