HB888 and its companion SB880 would have helped ensure that all communities in New Mexico are treated equally in decisions about where to locate pollution-causing industrial projects, regardless of their ethnic, socioeconomic, or cultural makeup.


HB888 died in the House, and SB880 died in the Senate. After HB888 died in the House, Rep. Miguel Garcia elected to introduce a memorial (HM97) which requests the Environment Department to study how to effectively address the cumulative and social impacts of its decisions. HM97 passed the House (45-17).
