KUNM Call In Show Thu. 1/16 8a: New Mexico’s annual legislative session begins on January 21st. Thirty-day sessions such as this one are mandated to handle the state’s budget matters.
But what can we really expect to be debated and passed with talk of driver’s licenses, education issues, indigent health care funding, the behavioral health care system and the economy and jobs circulating and potentially appearing before lawmakers?
We’ll talk with legislators and journalists to hear what their expectations and desires are and to note what proposed legislation has already been pre-filed and is beginning to be dissected.
