Details on the Japanese visit relating to New Mexico’s natural gas (and more)

The Japanese delegation came to town to talk about importing New Mexico’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) to their country. As I’ve noted before, this could be a real boon for New Mexico.

Rob Nikolewski at Capitol Report New Mexico has a great in-depth column about the visit and some of the issues standing in the way of this windfall for our state’s economy.

KRQE Channel 13 has a report here as well.

For a broader discussion of the political issues holding us back, check out this great column from libertarian syndicated columnist Steve Chapman.

Lastly, I visited Farmington recently (the Four Corners Region’s economy has been greatly harmed by depressed natural gas prices) and sat down with the folks at the Daily-Times which translated into this editorial on the issue (and other economic issues of interest to the Four Corners).
