SANTA FE – Congratulations to the state Senate on its glorious basketball victory last week. It isn’t often the Senate beats the House in basketball, what with its inferior numbers and advanced age. There was a time, however, when the Senate was supreme, or so it was proclaimed by Sen. C.B. Trujillo of Taos. Trujillo was a big guy, who served back in the 1970s. He was a dominating basketball player and tried to do the same in the Senate. In those days, the Senate used to win its share of basketball games. The following day, Trujillo would rise on the floor of the Senate to proclaim “The Senate is supreme.” Basketball victories weren’t the only occasion on which Trujillo would shout his battle cry. It also happened when the House and Senate tangled over the general appropriations bill. Trujillo would rise to remind his Senate colleagues that the Senate is supreme. Trujillo wasn’t far off. Sen. Aubrey Dunn of Alamogordo was chairman of the Senate Finance Committee in those days.
