League lobbies legislature

-A A +A
By Roger Snodgrass

The New Mexico League of Women Voters Tuesday pressed state legislators for commitments, pro and con, on bills the league has decided to favor or oppose this year.


Kicking off League Day at the Legislature with an early morning informational meeting in Morgan Hall at the State Land Office, state President Kathy Campbell of Los Alamos introduced the plans for a day of lobbying in the Capitol, including committee visits and gallery views of the separate House and Senate general sessions.


Encouraging personal visits to key representatives, Barbara Calef, secretary of the Los Alamos league, explained how to deliver the fact sheet with personalized messages to the right person involved with the issue. “Just open the door and walk in,” she said. “The first time might be a little scary.”


Campbell called immediate attention to two House bills the group is tracking that happened to be scheduled for discussion during the day.


One was HB252, a bill sponsored by Rep. Al Park, D-Bernalillo, before the House Voters and Election Committee that would, among other things, restrict contributions from individuals to any candidate for state office to a maximum of $2,300, and donations from political committees to $5,000.
