Legislature to feature new faces

-A A +A

Election: Thirty-five freshman lawmakers will be at Round House

By Associated Press

SANTA FE. (AP) — Nearly a third of the 112 members of Legislature will be new to the House and Senate when lawmakers convene in January, and that could end up helping Republican Gov. Susana Martinez and her push to end driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants.
There will be at least 15 new senators and 20 or 21 new House members — depending on a recount in one race — when lawmakers meet for next year’s 60-day session.
In the Senate, the election appears to have added more supporters of the license proposal that has been a centerpiece of the governor’s legislative agenda.
Democratic leaders and the governor say they can put aside their election year differences, but others aren’t so certain. Some of the harshest campaign attacks against Democrats came from a political committee run by the governor’s political adviser. One of the new lawmakers will be Democrat Stephanie Garcia Richard, who beat Jim Hall in House District 43.
