                               BACKGROUND AND NEED FOR LEGISLATION
                     The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) oversees more than 247
                   million acres of U.S. land and 700 million acres of subsurface min-
                   eral estate and is the primary federal agency responsible for man-
                   aging oil and gas resources on public land. Over the last decade,
                   oil and gas production in New Mexico has increased dramatically
                   as a result of hydraulic fracturing and the presence of abundant re-
                   sources. New Mexico is 35 percent public land, and oil and gas pro-
                   duction in New Mexico is disproportionately produced on these
                   public lands-in 2017, 57 percent of New Mexico's oil and 65 per-
                   cent of New Mexico's gas was produced from the federal mineral
