New Mexico senators unite to push NMon proclamations for Rio Grande Gorge, Organ Mountains
A large swath of northern New Mexico would become a national monument based around the Rio Grande Gorge under a new proposal by the state’s two U.S. senators.
Sens. Jeff Bingaman and Tom Udall also are asking President Barack Obama to designate the Organ Mountains in the south part of the state as a national monument. The Democratic senators want a much bigger Organ Mountains monument than one proposed by Republican U.S. Rep. Steve Pearce.
