NMBC on National Press Call Supporting Congressional Review Act to Repeal BLM Methane Rule

Chairman Bishop of the House Committee on Natural Resources Holds a Press Call with NMBC and other Stakeholders to Discuss Repeal of DOI Regulations Under the Congressional Review Act

NMBC was on a National Press Call this morning (1-27-17), working with Congressman Rob Bishop - Utah, Chair of the House Committee on Natural Resources to Repeal a recent BLM Rule aimed at the Oil and Gas Industry. NMBC was the only business group on the call supporting the use of the Congressional Review Act to repeal a BLM Venting and Flaring rule that went into effect towards the end of President Obama's administration. Removing the unnecessary, duplicative and expensive BLM rule will be a huge step forward to help New Mexico's struggling oil and gas industry.

NM Session Begins – Time to Cut the Red Tape

For too long, the EPA has ignored the impact of its regulations on the lives and livelihoods of the men and women who make things in America. Manufacturers and other business owners want to see improvements at the EPA so that the goals of environmental stewardship and economic growth can be achieved at the same time. President-elect Donald Trump’s nomination of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt for EPA administrator signals that change is finally coming.

Start the year with a BASH!

The 2017 New Mexico legislative session will be starting soon and based on the bills that have been pre-filed, elected officials are full of ideas on how to change our lives through legislation. Do YOU want to see more regulation, increased taxes and more money taken from our permanent funds for an education system that needs a complete overhaul before it needs more money? From what we've heard, the answer is a resounding 'No!'

NMBC recently conducted a survey, asking for your input on topics such as minimum wage increases, the state budget, addressing crime, tax reform and more. We got some amazing responses and thoughtful feedback that we'll be sharing at the BASH (Business and Social Hour) on January 12.

Taxpayers: Don’t get left out in the cold

In politics everyone works for someone.

Politicians work for bureaucrats, bureaucrats work for corporations, corporations work for shareholders, all the while the person who should be the boss, the taxpayer, is left out in the cold.

At the New Mexico Business Coalition (NMBC) we know citizens are supposed to be the real leaders in our system of self-governance. That’s why we work each day, fighting on their behalf, while keeping them informed and engaged with what’s happening politically.

No one else in New Mexico does what NMBC does.
