The minimum wage would rise from $7.50 to $10 an hour on July 1, $11 an hour in 2020, and $12 an hour in 2021.

“Tonight, New Mexico came one step closer to realizing a much-needed raise for more than 100,000 New Mexicans,” Gov. Lujan Grisham said.

The bill heads to the Senate for debate. If it's passed there, it will head to the governor's desk for a signature.
