    Proposed state clean fuel mandate bill passes first committee – By Megan Gleason (Albuquerque Journal) / Jan 20, 2024

    SANTA FE — Saturday morning at the Legislature was all things energy as lawmakers debated for about five hours on legislation that would allow for statewide clean transportation fuel standards.

    The approval from the House Environmental and Natural Resources Committee is just the first step in many needed to get through the 2024 Legislature.

    A different version of the bill died last year after approval by two House committees.
