504 PNM Merger Ruling at NM Supreme Court, Western Electric Grid, Transit Ridership, Electric Vehicles, Nuclear Storage and more

NM’s Supreme court weighs in on PNM merger. It will consider the merger itself, not the new PRC. The massive California snowpack could alleviate electricity woes on the Western grid at least temporarily thanks to a boost in hydro-power.

A recent blog from Cato Institute notes that national transit ridership remains depressed and is likely to remain so.

Meanwhile, the ABQ Journal decries free buses’ role in facilitating crime. Ford loses $66,446 for every EV it sells. 

Will ABQ become a “shanty town” if Mayor Keller gets his way? 

The proposed interim nuclear storage facility in SE New Mexico has been approved. Meanwhile the ABQ Journal editorial board recently called out MLG & the Congressional delegation for opposing the facility.
