Sen. Tom Udall signs off, but 'not retiring'


December 9, 2020

New Mexico Sen. Tom Udall delivered his farewell speech Tuesday on the Senate floor after serving the state and its 23 federally recognized tribes for nearly 30 years.

“As I talk about my love of the land, I cannot neglect to acknowledge how much I have learned from the original stewards of this land – Native Americans. I got my start in politics working with my father, fighting alongside the Navajo uranium miners who had been hurt by this nation’s nuclear weapons program,” he said in his address. “My work as vice chair of the Indian Affairs Committee has been the honor of a lifetime.”
