    Who are the champions? The New Orleans Saints, dat's who.

  • NM emissions bill in limbo

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A House panel has tabled legislation that would lay the groundwork for New Mexico's participation in a future cap-and-trade program.

    More than two dozen people pleaded with lawmakers last week not to pass the measure, arguing it could cripple businesses and lead to higher utility bills.

    SANTA FE — A fight over spending and taxes is brewing in the Senate as lawmakers work on a $5.6 billion budget package passed by the House.
