Senate Bill 169 has passed both houses of the legislature and is now on its way to the governor’s desk.
Last year, the governor pocket vetoed this same bill.
We need to make the governor aware of the benefits that our boys and girls can derive from this legislation.
We need to contact her in every way possible to get our message to her, write a letter, send an email, send a fax, use letters to the editor, write a news article, contact “talk radio,” or make a phone call to the governor’s office.
Here are some of the reasons for the governor to sign this legislation into law.
Citizens are woefully ignorant of how our government works.
• People do not have an idea of what kind of government we have.
• Civics is not taught in New Mexico as a singular classroom unit. It is scattered in social studies over 13-year grade levels and pieces.
• The American Legion is an organization of military veterans that are concerned about the lack of interest in government. Hence, the programs to inform and teach young men and women the essentials of our form of government. Boys State and Girls State are sponsored by the American Legion and the American Legion Auxiliary to provide training and experience in how government is operated and how we govern ourselves.
