The legislature can do what it likes when it comes to regulating or deregulating the oil industry, but global economics will rule what the oil companies ultimately do when it comes to either turning on or turning off their oil well pumps.

Right now they cannot make money selling oil that comes from any oil field in America. Saudi Arabia and Russia are now in the process of driving everyone else out of business. Once they succeed they will likely buy up the assets of the remains of the world's oil industries, then jack up the price of oil on us all.

There aren't enough potheads in NM to make up what we need to replace oil and gas income.
