Washington, D.C. (January 20, 2021) — The BiotechnologyInnovation Organization (BIO) and the Low Carbon Fuels Coalition (LCFC) today released the following statement in support of New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s inclusion of a clean fuel standard in her priorities for the 2021 session:

“BIO and the Low Carbon Fuels Coalition thank Governor Lujan Grisham for recognizing the potential of a clean fuel standard to decarbonize transportation—the state’s second-largest emitter of greenhouse gases,” said Stephanie Batchelor, Vice President of BIO’s Industrial and Environmental Section in a statement joined by LCFC Executive Director Graham Noyes. “Stable policies like a clean fuel standard that incentivize green energy breakthroughs will help improve the state’s air quality and public health, revitalize the state’s economy following COVID-19, and spur development in New Mexico's biotechnology sector. We look forward to working with Governor Lujan Grisham and state lawmakers to establish a clean fuel standard in New Mexico.”
