Alamogordo Daily News: Energy and security tied together

Our nation’s dependence on oil affects us all. In New Mexico, we are fortunate enough to have Sen. Tom Udall in Congress working to secure our country’s energy future.

The New Mexico Energy Forum, a group sponsored by the national American Petroleum Institute, recently submitted an opinion piece titled “Oil Industry a Vital Part of the U.S. Economy.” The piece contained serious misrepresentations of Udall’s efforts on behalf of our country and state. Throughout his time in Congress, Udall has been a consistent champion of energy legislation that strengthens our economy and national security.
