New Mexico Among Hardest Hit States By Proposal To Ban Federal Land Leases
A federal leasing ban has been discussed during the elections as a policy solution to push the country towards clean energy. But is that the right plan for everyday people in states like New Mexico?
Economic analysis of such a plan shows that it would threaten 62,000 New Mexico jobs and $1 billion in state revenue. This impact of a federal leasing ban extends outside of New Mexico to the economies of neighboring states and the national security of the entire country. Additionally, a ban would slow investment in conservation projects and would stall environmental progress.
