ACTION EMAIL #29

Dear Fellow New Mexican,
 

THIS WEEK IN BRIEF

- This is an easy one!  Please click here to sign a petition to protect NM's ratepayers from PNM's $350 million dollar coal bailout.

- Attend a Women's March near you this weekend. Details for ABQ, Santa Fe, Taos, Las Cruces, and Fort Sumner marches below.


THIS WEEK IN DETAIL

From the Moveon.org petition:

"Public Service Company, PNM, a privately held electric monopoly, has made hundreds of millions of dollars off their aging polluting San Juan coal plant and now wants $350 more million to close the plant “early.” Even though PNM will literally produce no electricity from the plant, it claims it is still entitled to the profit it hoped to get from ratepayers. Senate Bill 47, PNM's "Energy Redevelopment Bonding Act” will force ratepayers to pay the $350 million to Wall St. bondholders (who have paid PNM up front) from a monthly increase on everyone's electric bill. It’s time to hold PNM accountable, to protect ratepayers from PNM’s greed, and deny PNM a bailout resulting from their utility management malpractice!"


CALL TO ACTION

Sign the petition here.  If you have time, please also call your state senator this week and ask him or her to vote NO on SB47.  You can look up the office number for your state senator here.

 

SAMPLE SCRIPT

"Hi I am calling to let my senator know that I do NOT support SB47.  PNM's shareholders do not deserve a bailout for their poor planning from their customers here in New Mexico.  Please vote NO on this bill."
