Valle Vidal Protection Act

The Valle Vidal Protection Act is scheduled for a vote Monday in the U.S. House of Representatives, the office of U.S. Rep. Tom Udall, D-N.M., said Friday. The bill would ban oil and natural-gas drilling on 102,000 acres of Northern New Mexico’s high-mountain valleys and forests, an area controlled by the U.S. Forest Service.

Wondering what this is all about? It’s about protecting some the of most incredible outdoor areas in New Mexico. Some would like to just strip off all that eye candy and get to the natural resources underneath, thankfully there are a lot of people that want to protect it.
