Leave Clean Car Regs to Legislture

It would seem obvious at a time when Congress is raising fuel economy on a national scale that similar efforts should be done legislatively in New Mexico if they are to be done at all. Unfortunately, in New Mexico, too often it is nameless and faceless bureaucrats that make these decisions. In fact, the Environmental Improvement Board and Albuquerque-Bernalillo County Air Quality Board recently decided to adopt so-called “Clean Car” regulations in New Mexico, a move that would dramatically reduce emissions. As the Albuquerque Journal points out, such moves should at least be considered by our elected officials before they become law.
