    SANTA FE — The Legislature convened Tuesday for a special session and immediately focused on the politically charged task of redistricting, which will influence elections and public policy in New Mexico for the next decade.

Susana Martinez also wants the Legislature to consider 10 proposals besides drawing new boundaries of congressional, legislative and other elective office districts.

  • The battle heats up

    Gov. Susana Martinez has been hauled into court again, although this time it’s Martinez’s Taxation and Revenue Secretary Demesia Padilla who is targeted in a case filed in Santa Fe state district court.
    The suit cites Padilla for implementing the governor’s directive to dispatch some 10,000 letters seeking proof of residency from New Mexico licensed drivers presumed to be illegal immigrants.
    Such licenses may be legally obtained by foreign nationals in New Mexico under a state law passed in 2003.
    Martinez doesn’t like that law and promised to have it repealed during her campaign last year.
