AG Balderas’ Statement on EPA Rollback of Methane Emission Regulations

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September 11, 2018

 Contact: David Carl  (505) 288-2465

Today, Attorney General Hector Balderas issued this statement, in response to the Environmental
Protection Agency’s dangerous plan to roll back methane regulations:
“By rolling back critical methane waste regulations, President Trump’s EPA continues to put
industry profits before New Mexican families’ safety and our environment,” said Attorney
General Hector Balderas. “Wasting New Mexico’s natural resources not only harms our families,
but jeopardizes our precious environment, so I will continue to fight these harmful acts with
every tool available to me.”
