Please keep the 2009 NM Energy Conservation Code in place.
[Include any or all of the following points along with your personal point of view.]

The 2009 NM Energy Conservation Code is a common sense, cost-effective code developed by builders, code officials, product suppliers, and efficiency advocates during a year-long process. The majority of the sections of the code were adopted by the Construction Industries Commission in July 2010, and the final two sections of the commercial code were adopted in September 2010. This process included weekly meetings open to the public for over a year, a series of public hearings around the state, and the gathering of written public comment. Technical, energy-use, and economic analyses were completed for each section of the code.
New Mexicans stand to benefit significantly from the swift implementation of this adopted code, which will achieve an increase of almost 20 percent in energy efficiency compared to the performance of buildings that meet the current 2006 New Mexico Energy Conservation Code.
The current situation? The commissioners of the Construction Industries Division (CID) of the State Regulation and Licensing department are preparing to roll back these newly installed construction codes that improve building energy efficiency.
