Conservation Voters New Mexico Releases 2015 Legislative Priorities

CVNM News:

SANTA FE—Conservation Voters New Mexico (CVNM) will be advocating for or against a myriad of bills at the Roundhouse during the 2015 New Mexico legislative session.

CVNM’s legislative priorities are outlined in the first edition of CVNM’s legislative agenda, which covers issues such as air quality, water, energy and climate change, effective government, environmental justice, wildlife and habitat conservation. The agenda is attached and can be found on CVNM’s website at

“New Mexicans across the political spectrum care about creating jobs that support healthy communities, and CVNM will continue our work to ensure that those values are represented in the legislature,” CVNM Legislative Director Victor Reyes said. “We can create a sustainable economy that preserves New Mexico’s diverse and culturally rich communities while bringing good-paying jobs to our state that don’t pollute the air we breathe and the water we drink.”

This agenda forms the basis of our Conservation Scorecard, published after each legislative session. The Scorecard provides objective, non-partisan information about the conservation voting records of all members of the legislature.

“CVNM’s legislative team, led by Victor, will be in the Roundhouse full time for the 60-day session ensuring that common sense safeguards are kept in place to protect New Mexico’s families and communities,” CVNM Executive Director Demis Foster said.

CVNM is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that is connecting the people of New Mexico to their political power to protect our air, land, and water for a healthy Land of Enchantment. We do this by mobilizing voters, helping candidates win elections, holding elected officials accountable and advancing responsible public policies.
