Senator to deliver first Senate floor speechJune 12th, 2013 at 3:24 pm by Bill Diven under N.M. Politics
Sen. Martin Heinrich will tout New Mexico’s role in meeting past and future energy challenges in his first Senate floor speech on Thursday.
A statement from the senators office says the speech will be delivered at about 8:15 a.m. New Mexico time and will air on CSPAN-2, which also will stream it online.
“In his speech, Senator Heinrich will discuss the important role that New Mexico has played and will continue to play in shaping the nation’s energy future, and that our capacity to deal with many of our 21st century challenges rests heavily on our ability to make policy that is driven by facts, by data, and by science,” the statement said.
Heinrich, a Democrat and former congressman, was elected to the Senate last year succeeding Sen. Jeff Bingman, who retired.
