Let's talk about the 2024 legislative session

New Mexico Legislature

Let’s Talk New Mexico 1/18 8am: It’s time for another short legislative session focused on the state budget as New Mexico is seeing historically high revenue, mostly from oil and gas development. But a few other issues that either require budgeting or are authorized by the governor will be on lawmakers’ agendas. The governor is pushing for an array of public safety measures, including gun restrictions, while lawmakers are also focused on education reform, the state’s child welfare agency, and energy and the environment.

On the next Let’s Talk New Mexico we’ll discuss key legislative issues with lawmakers and advocates. Are you following the legislative process or particular issues? Where do you think lawmakers and the governor should be focusing our financial resources? We want to hear from you.
