Anything is possible

-A A +A

Compromise could be answer for what ails legislators

By Jay Miller

The master plan for this special legislative session on redistricting seems to be falling into place.
Although surprises always are possible in the give and take between the governor and lawmakers who aren’t particularly fond of each other.
Gov. Susana Martinez says the session can easily be over in two weeks. The legislature appropriated enough money for three weeks.
The maximum length allowed by law is 30 days but no one would benefit by it going that long.
The likely scenario is for lawmakers to wrap up redistricting in about two weeks and then turn their attention to the governor’s agenda for several days.
By remaining in session, Martinez will have to act on the redistricting bills within three days.
That will give lawmakers an opportunity to override any vetoes. It also allows for all sorts of horse trading.
The governor will be very busy during those days analyzing the redistricting bills plus advocating for her own package of an expected 11 bills.
Of course, Martinez said before the session that she was planning to work hard and intimating that most lawmakers weren’t anxious to work.
