Congresswoman Haaland is an original co-sponsor of the Green New Deal Resolution, H.R. 109.  One of Congresswoman Haaland’s top priorities is tackling climate change and building a strong renewable energy economy in New Mexico and around the country. With more than 300 days of sunlight each year, New Mexico is poised to be a leader in solar energy production, which has a ripple effect into solar production and energy transmission jobs. In addition, the plains east of the Sandia Mountains in New Mexico’s First Congressional District are ripe for wind energy production and industry.
