December 12, 2019

SANTA FE – Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez and legislative sponsors of the 2019 Energy Transition Act on Monday afternoon petitioned the New Mexico Supreme Court for an emergency review, asking the Court to direct the Public Regulation Commission to apply the 2019 Energy Transition Act in cases filed after the ETA’s enactment. New Mexico House Speaker Brian Egolf, Sen. Jacob Candelaria, Sen. Mimi Stewart and Rep. Nathan Small were ETA co-sponsors and joined Monday’s petition; President Nez joined as a petitioner as well. Here is a statement from the Governor's office:

“The ETA is the law of the land,” Gov. Lujan Grisham said. “The Legislature passed it, I signed it, and it should be applied to all PRC filings made since the effective date. Unwarranted delays are hurting New Mexico workers and communities.”
