"New Mexico plays an ex- tremely important role in meet- ing our nation's energy needs," said Bingaman, who chairs the Senate Energy and Natural Re- sources Committee. "The rev- " enue New Mexico receives from being a key energy producer al- lows us to make essential invest- ments in our state. .'1,;.',' : ',' "'The pe9le-o,f. New our state produces more energy than we consume," said Udall. "It's because of the royalties earned through the sound man- agement of our natural re- sources that we have been able to reinvest this funding into key programs and prevent the reces- sion froiia worsening in our state." Tile revenue paYments were generated from the production of off, gas, and potash, among others; The disbursements come from the U.S. Department Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to determine the cause of the E.coli cases. Most people infected with E. coli O157:H7 develop diarrhea and abdominal cramps, but some illnesses may last longer and can be more severe. While most people recover within a week, some may develop a severe in- fection. Rarely, as symptoms of diarrhea improve, a type of kid- ney failure called hemolytic ure- mic syndrome,(HUS) can occur; this can happen at any age but is most common in children should be hospitalized immedi- ately, as their kidneys may stop working and they may be at risk for other serious health problems. As of November 4, 25 persons infected with the outbreak strain of E. coli O157:H7 have been re- ported from five states since mid- October. The number of ill per- sons identified in each state with this strain is as follows: AZ (11), CA (1), CO (8), NM (3) and NV (2). There have been nine reported hospitalizations, one possible case of HUS and no deaths. Orona, right, is pictured with herchildren, Gabriela and Joshua.
