A tale of two bills

-A A +A
By The Staff

Like most legislators, I am not proud of the fact that we were unable to finalize the budget during the 30-day session.  Our budget is top priority and I am confident that we will be able to balance it during the upcoming special session.

However, the 30-day session was not a complete loss. There were some important issues that I am grateful we did address.  Our state faces an urgent need for restructuring in the areas of “double dipping,” investment funds, education, domestic violence, stalled capital outlay, incentive accountability, reservation infrastructure and ethics reform.  Thankfully, bills were successfully passed that addressed many of these crucial topics. 

Two issues I happened to work on, State Investment Council Reform, Senate Bill 18 and Economic Development Incentive Accountability, Senate Bill 47, would not have been possible without bipartisan collaborative efforts between both legislative chambers and the executive branch.  In the current context where cynicism tends to be the norm, these two bills are a testament to how government can come together and work effectively for New Mexicans.
