Legislative Action Team

Co-facilitator: annually nominated.

The legislative action team works to influence public policy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase reliance on efficiency and renewable energy sources. This is accomplished through legislation at the state, federal and local levels, and by executive actions. Since 350 Santa Fe is located in the state capital, and with experts among our membership, we are well-positioned to take a leading role in advancing state policy.

Our current plans for advocating for climate-friendly policies at the state level include legislation supporting community solar electrical generation; promoting transition from gasoline-powered to electric vehicles; advocating for a green constitutional amendment; growing geothermal energy infrastructure; and supporting only renewable hydrogen hub projects.

We collaborate with our friends at 350 New Mexico and the Rio Grande Chapter of the Sierra Club in evaluating priorities, understanding needed support and supporting lobbying efforts. For a view of the New Mexico legislative process study our chart.

We will also support the state administration’s efforts to obtain strong regulations to reduce methane emissions, clean cars and trucks and more.
