Hector Balderas Sides with Environmental Extremists and Advocates for Raising Utility Rates on Working Families

Albuquerque, NM– After previously supporting an agreement concerning the PNM San Juan Generating Station, Attorney General Hector Balderas is now siding with environmental extremists in favor of higher utility rates for energy consumers across the state.

“By siding with extreme special interest groups, he is turning his back on working families who cannot afford higher energy prices,” said Pat Garrett, spokesman for the Republican Party of New Mexico.

In a move that would jeopardize reliable electricity for all  of our people, the Santa Fe New Mexican reported that the Attorney General pulled his support for an agreement that ensured PNM would be able to continue to provide competitive electricity rates to all New Mexicans.

Even worse, the Attorney General chose to sling divisive rhetoric at a major New Mexico industry and job provider— calling the state’s energy industry dysfunctional and referring to PNM as a “wealthy corporation.”

“Hector Balderas’s divisive rhetoric is hurting economic progress, and attacking a business will certainly not encourage other businesses to move to or expand here in New Mexico,” Garrett continued.
