Oil Company Sues Rio Arriba Over Drilling Ban

From The New Mexico Independent , "It hasn't been a good year for energy companies looking to develop new oil and gas fields in northern New Mexico. Three months ago, the Santa Fe County Commission voted unanimously to prohibit drilling in the Galisteo Basin for at least a year. And the Rio Arriba County Commission did the same thing last month -- unanimously approving a four-month ban on new oil and gas drilling in the county."

  1. Rio Arriba has been ranked among the dirtiest 10% of all US Counties for air pollution. All due to oil and gas activities.
    Rio Arriba is an amazing beautiful county. This is a crime. The ban should be permanent.
