2011 HB 178 Denial of Air Quality Control Permits
Under every major environmental statute, New Mexico has the authority to deny a permit to egregious violators of environmental laws--except under the Air Quality Control Act. The effect is that companies can contaminate our air and make our children sick, but we still can’t stop them from operating in our state. HB178 would have rectified this inequity in statute by authorizing the state to deny or revoke permits in instances where the applicant or permittee is guilty of specific bad acts.
HB178 died in the House Energy and Natural Resources Committee.
