Bills that passed NM’s 60-day legislative session
SANTA FE, N.M. – The legislative session ended Saturday with a flurry of activity, and both major parties are highlighting their successes.
“I do think, frankly, that New Mexico is leading the country in finding ways to come together, in the willingness that if we can’t find the solution, we’ll come at it again,” said Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham.
Lawmakers passed more than 200 bills that will affect the state. Now, the governor has to decide how many she’ll sign.
Lujan Grisham said she’s not inclined to bring lawmakers back for a special session.
