April 9, 2021 – The Line opinion panel zeroes in on the bills being signed (and not) by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham. Friday marks the deadline for the governor to approve legislation. Anything not signed, vetoed or singled out for a line-item veto is automatically vetoed after that. The governor put her name to numerous significant bills, and the group discusses what they mean for New Mexico in the coming months and years. Gene Grant and The Line panelists start with the legislation that topped the list at the added special session: adult-use cannabis legalization. Education reforms, the Civil Rights Act, and other significant bills spur the conversation.
The Line Opinion Panel:
Sophie Martin, attorney
Dan Foley, former NM House minority whip
Julie Ann Grimm, editor and publisher, Santa Fe Reporter
