Portales, NM (December 20, 2012) – Today, it was announced that courts have approved a consent decree to reinstate the food facility registration of Sunland, Inc.  Congressman Pearce issued the following statement on the decision:

“I am glad that Sunland will be able to resume some operations,” said Pearce.  “While public safety is of the utmost importance, there was serious concern in the community that the suspension had been handled unfairly.  I am glad that this issue has been resolved, and that concerns over both safety and jobs have been addressed.  I encourage all those involved to allow employees to resume work immediately.”
