Climate & Energy Bills – 2021

350 Santa Fe Priority Climate & Energy Bills

Below find our list of legislative initiatives that our Legislative Action Team has identified as most deserving of our energies and efforts. We look forward to working with the many organizations that have also identified these as something worth pushing for.

The list includes issues and proposals that are expected to be introduced as bills, memorandum or resolutions for the New Mexico 2021 long session. As details are determined and bills are filed, IDs assigned, and progressed through committees we plan to include their status below.

View the 2021 legislative committees membership and contact information as compiled by 350NM.

Please note that this information is often tentative and subject to change at short notice.

Actively tracked legislation means one or more volunteers will at least be watching developments. For more information see the included links. If you are interested in promoting these or any of the Other Great Legislative Bills, please contact us.
