New Mexico Governor Reversed February 3, 2011 : 5:37 PM

A few weeks ago I wrote about New Mexico’s new governor rolling back successful climate legislation. Thankfully those decisions have been reversed by the state Supreme Court:

“You may have seen in our recent blog post that New Mexico’s governor was blocking a new state rule to limit global warming pollution. Well, here’s some good news: This week, the New Mexico Supreme Court ruled unanimously that the rule will go on the books.”

“This means that New Mexico will require major polluters to reduce greenhouse gas pollution by 3% each year, starting in 2013. And we hope this will encourage businesses to tap into New Mexico’s enormous potential for renewable energy. For example, New Mexico has some of the best potential for solar energy in the world.”
