A crowd appeared for the Dec. 2 Legislative Finance Committee meeting. The topic was a new consensus General Fund Revenue Projection. All 16 LFC members were there.
Eight other legislators had a chair at the front of Room 307 in the Capitol in Santa Fe. House Speaker Ben Lujan sat in a dark corner, almost hidden. Room 307 wasn’t full, as in wall-to-wall full. The audience, scattered around the room, included lobbyists, state staff, and business types.
