They’re doubling down on the failed maximum pressure campaign. And this president is newly emboldened – he thinks he can do anything he wants under Article II—he keeps saying that and repeating it over and over again— so it is absolutely necessary to act now, before it’s too late. And I’m glad we did. The message we sent today is unequivocal. And make no mistake – this message is critical at this moment in time.

We have a responsibility to act now before the overwhelming public health, environmental, climate and societal effects of plastic pollution reach the point of no return. Our solutions are not only possible—they are practical and are already being implemented in cities and states across the country, including in my home state of New Mexico. But we need a comprehensive, national strategy to tackle this tidal wave of pollution before it is too late. We must drive the innovation necessary to break free from this unnecessary, toxic waste stream that also accelerates the destruction of our planet via climate change.

Nearly two decades later, it’s even clearer that this war was a disastrous misjudgment that continues to erode our international standing, and now this authorization is being abused far beyond Saddam Hussein and the borders of Iraq. That’s why I have also worked to prevent the United States from marching to war with Iran and engulfing our country in another endless conflict that the American people do not want.

Martin Heinrich said ( about Tom Udall ) : “If any place deserves Wild and Scenic River designation, it’s New Mexico’s Gila River,” “I’m proud to work with local leaders in southwestern New Mexico and Senator Tom Udall to draft the M.H. Dutch Salmon Greater Gila Wild and Scenic River Act, aptly named to honor the life and legacy of Silver City-based author and conservationist M.H. Dutch Salmon. There are very few places left like the headwaters of the Gila—a place near and dear to my heart and special to so many New Mexicans. The upper Gila and San Francisco rivers are some of the last naturally-flowing tributaries of the greater Colorado River watershed. Nearly 100 years ago, the spectacular landscapes and ecosystems shaped by these waters inspired the establishment of America’s first wilderness area. Wild and scenic designation will permanently protect the Gila’s free-flowing segments, attract more visitors to southwestern New Mexico, and grow our outdoor recreation industry” External link

Alan Lowenthal said ( about Tom Udall ) : “Today we face a global plastic pollution crisis that threatens our waterways, wildlife, and public health,” “The amount of plastic waste in our communities and the oceans is evidence of the urgent need to tackle this issue, an effort in which the United States is currently lagging. The European Union, Canada, and even India and China are taking bold actions to address this growing crisis. There is currently no incentive in this country to reduce and reuse plastic, or for producers to use recycled plastics. That is why the legislation I am introducing with Senator Udall is so important. The financial burden of cleaning up pollution should not be borne by taxpayers alone. The manufactures and companies who sell the products must be held accountable for the end use of their products” External link

Congress must assert its constitutional authority to halt the march to war with Iran before we repeat our past mistakes and risk the lives of thousands more Americans while squandering our global reputation, with little chance of improving our long-term security,” “Another endless war in the Middle East is not the ‘better deal’ the president promised.

Tom Udall said : “A decisive FEC that can judiciously enforce campaign finance violations is crucial to maintaining the legitimacy of our elections and democracy,” “In 2018 we now know that there were efforts to secretly funnel foreign money to candidates, deliberately violating our campaign finance laws to interfere in the outcome of those elections. This is illegal, and there is little to stop it from continuing in 2020. Right now, our FEC is toothless – and we don’t have an effective cop on the beat to protect our democracy. Without FEC enforcement, the integrity of our elections is vulnerable to the types of foreign interference that the founders warned about” External link

Tom Udall said : “In New Mexico, storm water pollutants are threatening the Rio Grande watershed — our state’s primary water source for drinking, agriculture and recreation,” “The bill we are introducing today is an important step to help our communities protect one of our most precious resources with green infrastructure projects that prevent trash, toxic chemicals and other contamination from polluting our waterways. These infrastructure projects will reduce flood risks, and instead recharge our aquifers – often at lower cost than traditional infrastructure. With federal, bipartisan support, New Mexico and states across the nation will have access to more comprehensive resources to keep our water resources clean and safe, through natural and innovative processes like permeable pavements and natural water detention areas” External link

Tom Udall said : “Today, the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office has confirmed our concerns: that the Trump Interior Department violated federal appropriations laws when it took the unprecedented step of cannibalizing park fees to pay to keep parks open during the Trump government shutdown,” “Their assurances at the time that their actions were legal have proven false, and there should be consequences for this violation. The American people pay these park fees to make improvements at our national parks – but instead the Trump administration illegally diverted them to limit the public relations fallout from its costly and unnecessary government shutdown. Leaving parks open during the shutdown without staff to protect visitor safety and natural and cultural resources was reckless in itself. But now we know the Trump administration went even further by breaking federal law to use fee revenues to soften the public backlash to the disastrous effects of the needless Trump shutdown on our parks and public lands. While we hope that President Trump will not lead us into yet another government shutdown, I hope this GAO decision will convince his Interior Department that using park fees in this way is not a ‘useful model’ for future shutdowns, as they have claimed” External link

Martin Heinrich said ( about Tom Udall ) : “If any place deserves Wild and Scenic River designation, it’s New Mexico’s Gila River,” “I’m proud to work with local leaders in southwestern New Mexico and Senator Tom Udall to draft the M.H. Dutch Salmon Greater Gila Wild and Scenic River Act, aptly named to honor the life and legacy of Silver City-based author and conservationist M.H. Dutch Salmon. There are very few places left like the headwaters of the Gila—a place near and dear to my heart and special to so many New Mexicans. The upper Gila and San Francisco rivers are some of the last naturally-flowing tributaries of the greater Colorado River watershed. Nearly 100 years ago, the spectacular landscapes and ecosystems shaped by these waters inspired the establishment of America’s first wilderness area. Wild and scenic designation will permanently protect the Gila’s free-flowing segments, attract more visitors to southwestern New Mexico, and grow our outdoor recreation industry” External link

Alan Lowenthal said ( about Tom Udall ) : “Today we face a global plastic pollution crisis that threatens our waterways, wildlife, and public health,” “The amount of plastic waste in our communities and the oceans is evidence of the urgent need to tackle this issue, an effort in which the United States is currently lagging. The European Union, Canada, and even India and China are taking bold actions to address this growing crisis. There is currently no incentive in this country to reduce and reuse plastic, or for producers to use recycled plastics. That is why the legislation I am introducing with Senator Udall is so important. The financial burden of cleaning up pollution should not be borne by taxpayers alone. The manufactures and companies who sell the products must be held accountable for the end use of their products” External link
