Environment

Mark opposes the so-called “Green New Deal,” believing it would destroy New Mexico’s energy economy, cause massive state budget cuts to education and health care spending, make the U.S. less competitive economically, and drive up the cost of living, working, farming, and running a business in America. 

Climate change can and must be addressed, but Mark is tired of those who believe that dismantling our energy economy is the only way to do so. Mark is opposed to policies or agreements that put the U.S. economy at a disadvantage globally, while the world’s largest polluters - India and China - sit idly by and refuse to engage in meaningful environmental impact reduction.
