New Mexico State Land Commissioner Aubrey Dunn has come under fire because his contrarian views are uncompromised by misinformation from the environmental lobby. He understands that the Bureau of Land Management’s impending rule on venting and flaring will actually be bad for public health and the environment.
Commissioner Dunn understands that producing more oil and natural gas leads to more economic opportunity in New Mexico. The industry generates over 92 percent of the revenue from school trust lands that supports education throughout the state. It provides about a third of the state budget to fund vital services like health care, public safety and low-income assistance for families.
