Senator Sedillo Lopez is planning to devastate our economy by passing a bill that would enact a 4 year ban on fracking!
Fracking provides New Mexico schools with more than $1 billion each year. A moratorium would only take money away from our students and force the layoffs of thousands of teachers. Without fracking, oil and gas production would be nearly non-existent in New Mexico. The oil and natural gas industry supports more than 100,000 jobs in New Mexico.
Fracking is a safe and scientifically engineered process that has been used in New Mexico for more than 50 years without a single case of groundwater contamination.
