Legislature battles Richardson As the legislative session ended Thursday, one could only wonder at the turn of events. What would have been unthinkable two years ago – and barely hinted at last year – occurred.The Legislature stood up to the governor. How the mighty has fallen.Once a political juggernaut, the governor could not even pull together a consensus within his own party to push through his legislative agenda. And remember, there is a huge Democratic majority in both Houses.So as lawmakers left town without giving Gov. Bill Richardson what he most wanted from them, the governor said a special session is in the wings.But we wonder why.The 30-day session was conducted on a rancorous note, with Richardson in the end calling it “mediocre, at best.”And the governor said he would call a special session devoted exclusively to health care.We fear that such a session will be much like one he called last year when the Senate came in, then adjourned and went home.
