House Bill 332: New Mexico Rural Heritage Act

Share

Overview

New Mexico House Bill 332, The Rural Heritage Act, keeps land ownership affordable for New Mexico’s families; secures land, water and other natural resources for the future; and contributes positively to local governments and economies.

The programs considered under HB 332 will change New Mexico’s property tax structure in a way that keeps agriculturally viable lands intact and allows private landowners to partner with state and federal agencies to implement practices that assist in meeting agricultural and natural resource objectives.

Call to Action

Western Landowners Alliance has worked with multiple stakeholders for several years to develop and refine the premise behind HB 332. We appreciate the legislative sponsors of the bill and those who have contributed to this concept. We believe that this effort will result in improved opportunities for our citizens and landowners, while also ensuring that our prime agricultural lands stay whole and healthy for future generations.

Help New Mexico families remain on the land: participate in our Call to Action today by attending the committee hearing at the New Mexico Roundhouse (Feb 12) or by calling members of the Agriculture and Water Resources Committee. Find all the information you need to participate in our Call to Action. Contact Lawrence@westernlandowners.org with any questions.

Rangeland monitoring – why to monitor and resources to get you started

The value of monitoring land attributes are generally known among land stewards. The greatest value is in gaining an understanding of the soils, plants and animals you manage, documenting that information and then using that information to guide future decisions.

We’re in this together

At Western Landowners Alliance, we respect land as a living community that includes both people and wildlife. Today, the movement for racial justice underscores more than ever that we are one people on a finite planet. Our care for one another and our care for the land go hand in hand. The impulses that lead people to abuse others are the same impulses that lead to abuse of land and natural resources. Yet we also have the capacity to create systems, cultures and relationships that curtail injustice, generate healing and bring forward the better aspects of our nature. There has never been a more important time to do so.
