Action Center: Stop the Federal Leasing Moratorium

The Biden administration’s federal oil and gas leasing moratorium will have devastating consequences for New Mexico’s economy.

This new policy risks the loss of more than 60,000 jobs and $1.5 billion in support for our public schools, first responders, and healthcare services.

Nearly half New Mexico’s oil and natural gas production occurs on federal land. Will you help make our voices heard by contacting your representatives in Washington, D.C.?

Urge Senators Heinrich and Luján to stand up for New Mexico jobs.

Thank you for supporting New Mexico jobs! 

Hi, I am calling to ask the Senator to stand up for New Mexico’s economy by opposing any ban or moratorium on federal land leasing or permitting.

The Biden administration's announced moratorium on oil and natural gas leasing and permitting on federal lands all but guarantees that New Mexico's unemployment will rise, state revenue will fall, and our economy will come to a halt.

Oil and gas development on federal lands is a critical part of New Mexico’s economy, and restricting activity here risks the loss of more than 60,000 jobs and $1.5 billion in support for our public schools, first responders, and healthcare services.

A federal leasing moratorium impacts our state more than any other in the country, and our country and state are best served by keeping jobs here at home, rather than outsourcing them abroad.

Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
