SANTA FE (AP) — With just a week to go at the New Mexico Legislature, the website is down and webcasting is unavailable to the public for floor sessions and committee meetings.
Legislative officials say the problems Friday are related to off-site equipment that serves the state capitol, and that state technicians are working with a private service provider to restore the connection. State email accounts and public wifi service also were not functioning.
The legislative schedule is packed over the next few days but viewers missed out Friday morning on committee meetings in which stricter ethics guidelines and a bill to change penalties for marijuana possession were debated.
In the Senate, more confirmation hearings are scheduled and lawmakers are still working out details of the state budget.
The Legislature adjourns March 18.
