Gov. Susana Martinez says her administration is trying to do a better job of reaching out to Democrats and Republicans in the Legislature this year.
The Democratic-controlled Legislature returned to work at noon today for a 30-day session.
Martinez delivered her “state of the state” address and two of the people she cited were former Los Alamos fire chief Doug Tucker and present police chief Wayne Torpy for their work during the Las Conchas Fire.
A top assignment for lawmakers is approving a budget to finance state government. The Republican governor will outline her legislative priorities in a state of the state speech to a joint session of the House and Senate shortly after the session convenes.
