New Mexico GOP attacks Biden’s ban on new federal oil and gas leases

Encinitas News Avatar

New Mexico Republicans hit back at Democrats who supported President Joe Biden’s present ban on federal oil and gas leases, penning a letter to the federal administration warning of the damaging impact the halt had on the state’s economy.

The letter signed by all 39 New Mexico Senate and House Republicans called on Biden and Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, herself a former U.S. representative for New Mexico’s First Congressional  District, to consider how the halt on new federal oil and gas leases would affect the industry – one of the state’s biggest economic drivers.

The moratorium was enacted as Biden took office and the Interior Department implemented a review of its federal leasing program with an interim report expected this month.
