I suspect the new Martinez administration will find a way to overturn this amongst much whining and gnashing of teeth by the environutters in Santa Fe. Either that or the legislature will take action. A couple of weeks ago Martinez said they would explore all options to nullify the action.

In your state, it’s Santa Fe. In Wyoming, it’s Jackson (bung)Hole. In Texas, it’s Austin. I’m sure wine sales are booming in those burgs, also.
