In a trip paid for by taxpayers, the first-year Democratic governor was in Utah for a meeting of the National Governors Association.

A spokeswoman says Lujan Grisham will join a forum about vehicle emissions and opposition led by California to a proposed rollback of standards enacted in 2012.

New Mexico has joined an alliance of 24 states that oppose the new federal standards.

The nonpartisan governors association is creating a learning network to help state governments promote outdoor recreation.

Taking clues from states such as Utah and Colorado, New Mexico hopes to get a larger foothold in the lucrative industry.
