New Mexico has been a participating state in the U.S. Climate Alliance (USCA) since the beginning of Governor Lujan Grisham’s first term, in 2019. Now, with Governor Lujan Grisham having joined the USCA executive committee in 2023, and poised to take up a co-chairmanship in April 2024, additional focused staff support within the Governor’s Office is necessary.
