LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - State Rep. Phillip Archuleta will be monitoring New Mexico's legislative session via his laptop computer as he recovers from major surgery.
The Las Cruces Democrat says he has already been involved in the early filing of legislation and requests of capital outlay funds for his district. He will also be getting daily reports from his secretary and the House staff once the session gets underway Tuesday.
Archuleta is recovering from hip surgery that followed a fall he took while attending an interim committee meeting.
While he will not be able to travel to Santa Fe, House officials say his family will be representing him on opening day.
Archuleta has served as a member of the House Water and Natural Resources Committee and the Agriculture and Water Resources Committee.
