Ethics Commission Proposal, Our Land, The Line

The November elections are less than a month away, and voters will choose whether to approve a change to the state constitution and create an independent statewide ethics commission. This week on New Mexico in Focus, correspondent Gwyneth Doland sits down with three experts to explain the ethics commission proposal – and what will be determined by the Legislature, should the amendment pass.

On this month’s Our Land segment, NMiF correspondent Laura Paskus sits down with two UNM professors to look at where the environment fits into New Mexico’s most important political races this year.
