Statement From Attorney General Raúl Torrez Regarding Recent EPA Oil and Gas Methane Rules Released by the Biden Administration

“We thank the Biden Administration for following New Mexico’s lead on oil and gas methane practices with today’s new EPA rules. These newly passed rules protect New Mexicans by ensuring neighboring states monitor and prohibit high-methane emitting practices when it comes to oil and gas industries. Further, these rules will create hundreds of clean energy jobs and boost our economy through our abundant natural resources,” said Attorney General Raúl Torrez.
