State legislators assume they’ll be back at the Roundhouse in a couple of months for a special session devoted to redistricting New Mexico’s three U.S. House seats, along with the five seats that comprise the Public Regulation Commission and, of course, the legislature itself.
Their target date for this late-summer conclave is Sept. 12, after Labor Day when the tourist season has waned, and hotels, motels and other accommodations will be available during their Santa Fe sojourn.
This will be Gov. Susana Martinez’s first special session, and it is she who will set the date for the legislature to convene.
Nor has she indicated whether that mid-September date suits her fancy.
Martinez remains a neophyte governor where the Legislature and legislative process are concerned.
She stumbled a number of times during last winter’s regular 60-day session, and in the immediate aftermath she was pointedly reprimanded by the state’s highest court for the cavalier manner with which she handled certain of her vetoes.
Nonetheless, an undaunted Martinez has intimated from time to time that she has a laundry list of additional items, over and above redistricting, that she might ask the legislature to consider at the upcoming special session.
