2019 NM Legislature Priority Bills

Each year, Sierra Club staff and volunteer leaders work with the ExCom and Conservation Committees to analyze and determine Club positions on bills at the State legislature. From among those on which we take a position, a number rise to the top as priority bills that deserve special attention and that we encourage our members to bring to the attention of their legislators.

Below is the Sierra Club list of priority bills for the current session with our position and each bill’s status as of the date provided. This list is updated periodically. It is not a complete list of all the bills we take a position on or lobby. For the latest status on bills and their location in the legislative process, go to https://www.nmlegis.gov/Legislation/Legislation_List.
