MLG Environment Secretary: flying in comfort (and against state rules) to Australia

Recently Gov. Lujan Grisham’s Environment Department Secretary James Kenney traveled to Australia with other members of the Administration. The trip, taken at taxpayer expense, wound up costing New Mexicans $15,000 (instead of $2,000) because the Secretary wanted to fly Business Class. This was a violation of New Mexico’s rules according to the Auditor’s office (check out the story from KOAT 7 here).

RGF’s president was asked to comment and discussed both the financial aspect of the trip as well as the fact that MLG is possibly the most anti-traditional energy Gov. in New Mexico history and yet neither Zoom nor even an economy class ticket were deemed adequate. As is typically the case MLG and her “green” agenda only apply to average New Mexicans, not herself and her own staff.
