On January 20, the NM State Legislature begins a 60-day session with the Republicans in control of the House for the first time in 60 years.    With this new political landscape, what are the implications for New Mexico’s land, air, water and wildlife?

Earth Matters co-producer Allyson Siwik interviews two veterans of the Roundhouse:

  • Dan Lorimier
    Conservation Chair of the Rio Grande Chapter of the Sierra Club
  • Representative Jeff Steinborn
    District 35 in Doña Ana County

They discuss the range of water, renewables, wildlife, trails and transparency bills that will be discussed in the 2015 session, including Steinborn’s bill to ban coyote-killing contests and legislation to provide solar and electric vehicle tax credits.
