Our nation is struggling to keep up with its growing energy demands. We have resources right here in Northeastern New Mexico that we need to harness. New technology enables us to integrate power from coal, gas, wind, and solar. Our area is prime for wind and gas development. I will continue efforts to encourage development of our natural resources to boost our economy and bring higher paying jobs to our communities. We also need transmission lines to support the Tres Amigas SuperStation, so that Tres Amigas can bring long-term economic stability to our area.
