Environmental Rollbacks Under Martinez

Thurs. 1/13: There is concern among New Mexico environmentalist that the incoming Martinez administration is wasting no time acting on a campaign promise to roll back environmental regulations. One of these is the so-called pit rule, which requires oil drillers to use more efficient liners in open pits where waste from drilling is dumped. Another is removing the cap on greenhouse gas emissions. How far will the environmental rollbacks go?
