You’ve got to hand it to Rep. Joseph Cervantes, Las Cruces Democrat. He pursues lonely quests, an admirable trait so long as he doesn’t go too far along the fantasy paths of Don Quixote, the protagonist of the first modern novel, written by a namesake, Miguel de Cervantes.
But read Don Quixote (and I have). You will find that the good Don’s efforts, some addled, some not, pursued truth, justice and the American way, as Superman might put it.
So it is truth, justice and a new New Mexican way with Joseph Cervantes’ continued pursuit of a commission to propose revisions of New Mexico’s Constitution. As of this writing, Cervantes’ House Bill 207 has unanimously passed the House Judiciary Committee with a minor amendment. It went to the Appropriations and Finance Committee, probably because the bill seeks $100,000 to run the 17-member commission for its two-year life.
The lead time for this column means HB 207 may have moved on by the time you read this. See: www.nmlegis.gov/lcs/_locatorcom.aspx?year=11 and scroll down until you find HB 207.
