In the 2009-2010 legislative session, Eichenberg served on these committees:


Stripping Enviro. Improvement Board of power

Rep. Paul Bandy introduced a motion to the Government Restructuring Task Force on December 20, 2010 to strip, potentially, the Environmental Improvement Board of its power to dictate policy, turning the EIB into strictly an advisory board in New Mexico. The motion passed with only Sen. Eichenberg opposing.

The EIB recently passed a controversial measure requiring the state to take part in a regional cap and trade plan and then passed a state-wide cap limiting emissions. Environmentalists praised the measures but industry interests say the plans will do nothing substantial to reduce green house gases and will put New Mexico’s energy companies at a competitive disadvantage.

Under the new motion, the EIB would lose its rule-making authority and would function as a technical, advisory board to the Secretary of the Environment Department. Only the environmental secretary — acting through the governor’s office — would have power to carry out rules and regulations.[3]
