SANTA FE – U.S. Rep. Deb Haaland called climate change the “issue of our time” Monday as she addressed a joint session of the Legislature.
In a 22-minute speech, she praised Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s decision to join a coalition of states committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and she slammed President Donald Trump’s declaration of a national emergency on the Mexican border. It was her first address to New Mexico lawmakers since winning election to Congress last year.
