According to Environment New Mexico, Representative Steve Pearce has received more than 1,143,000 dollars from polluters in the oil and gas industry, many of which have made it a high priority to stop EPA from protecting public health. He is reportedly part of a strong movement to prevent the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from updating Clean Air Act standards. This is troubling in our part of the state, where you can smell oil and oil chemicals in the air and the EPA won’t tell us exactly what we are breathing.
While this situation seems hopeless, it isn’t. We can stop electing him and refuse to elect him to the Senate.
