Gov. Martinez heeds RGF calls to speak out publicly for LNG exports

The Rio Grande Foundation has led the charge in New Mexico on behalf of exporting liquefied natural gas, a potential boon to our state’s economy. We are encouraged that Gov. Martinez has seen fit to weigh in with the Obama Administration on behalf of LNG exports.

Rob Nikolewski broke the story at Capitol Report New Mexico and the letter is available here.

Kudos to Gov. Martinez for speaking out publicly in support of New Mexico’s economy. We wish our Congressional delegation were more outspoken (several Members have expressed support) and that President Obama would actually heed his own rhetoric about job creation.
