Help Preserve and Protect New Mexico's Night Skies!
New Mexicans have long been proud of their dark pristine night skies where one can see the entire Milky Way year round! In fact, they backed this up by enacting a law in 1999 called The Night Sky Protection Act. It's purpose is, "To regulate outdoor lighting fixtures to preserve and enhance the state's dark sky while promoting safety, conserving energy, and preserving the environment for astronomy." Recently, the New Mexico State Transportation Commission allowed electronic billboards along federal highways throughout the state. This is in direct opposition to the letter and intent of the law. Please do your part to help preserve and protect your right to enjoy this most precious natural resource that belongs to all of us by signing this petition demanding that the New Mexico State Commission reverse their decision allowing these distracting and light polluting billboards. Thank You!
