SANTA FE – Minority Floor Leader Tom Taylor and Whip Dan Foley are optimistic about the upcoming 30-day legislative session, which begins at noon Tuesday. “We’ve had a cordial relationship with the governor,” said Foley, R-Chaves, Lincoln and Otero. “He’s had an open-door policy and we’ve been able to go in and talk with him about issues.”The GOP leaders discussed this year’s draft agenda, “Progress New Mexico,” during an interview at the state capitol Thursday.Taylor, R-San Juan, described the draft agenda as the top five items the Republican caucus feels are most important to making New Mexico better for its citizens. “Education wasn’t mentioned because education is a perennial item – always at the top of our list,” he said.In the past, Foley said, Republican legislators got together as a caucus the morning before the session and decided what they were not for. “With time, we decided that was not good leadership,” Foley said. “Last year we holed up at a hotel for 48 hours and discussed the important issues.
