• Remembering September 11 »

    From the victims who died, to the first responders who gave their lives to help, to the millions who were driven to lend a hand in some way or another, that day our country came together in unity and compassion for one another. September 11, 2009 - U.S. Representative Martin Heinrich of New Mexico’s First District released the following statement on the eighth anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks. “On this solemn day, we unite as Americans to mourn and pay tribute to the men, women, and children who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Eight years ago, we came together to comfort one another, to serve, to save, and to stand in unity as a nation. “Let us not forget what united our country. It was not fear or hatred. It was the common thread of hope and faith in one another, as fellow Americans. Today, we renew that spirit of service and unity by recognizing September 11 as the National Day of Service and Remembrance. I encourage all Americans to take time out of their day for service to their community and to remember the fallen.”

            • Visit to Manzano Wilderness Study Area »

              On May 1, 2009 U.S. Representative Martin Heinrich visited the Manzano Wilderness Study Area. Wilderness Study Areas (WSAs) are roadless areas that have been inventoried and found to have wilderness characteristics as described in the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA) and the Wilderness Act of 1964. FLPMA directed the BLM to identify its roadless areas and study them for their suitability for preservation as Wilderness. At the end of the study, BLM was required to provide a recommendation as to the suitability or non-suitability of each of those areas. WSAs are managed so as not to impair their suitability for preservation as wilderness until Congress decides to permanently protect them as Wilderness, or release them from WSA status to non-wilderness uses.
