U.S. Rep. Yvette Herrell (R-N.M) holds a press conference in Artesia on March 25, 2021. U.S. Rep. Pete Stauber (R-Minn.) listens to a question.

The impact of a moratorium on leasing of federal lands for oil and gas extraction on New Mexico’s oil and gas industry, the economy and families were topics of a roundtable discussion conducted Thursday by Rep. Yvette Herrell (R-N.M.) at the Artesia Chamber of Commerce.

Herreel was joined at the event by Rep. Pete Stauber (R-Minn.), Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.) and Ronny Jackson (R-Texas). The event offered each firsthand knowledge of oil and gas production in southeast New Mexico, as Herrell pointed to the importance of energy independence for the State and the U.S.

“We had a great roundtable with several of the (oil and gas) stakeholders this morning so we could understand the challenges unique to the industry,” Herrell said.

“So we can get the message out that people will fully understand that what we’re facing and why this industry is worth fighting for and why it matters not only to the state but the nation but to our energy independence.”
