This week on New Mexico in Focus, producer Sarah Gustavus talks with Senators Sander Rue and Jeff Steinborn about the transparency bills in this year’s legislative session.
A local cartoonist joins us to talk about political cartoons. In the wake of an uproar over a cartoon published in The Albuquerque Journal’s editorial page, producer Sarah Gustavus asks Ricardo Caté about the role of political cartoonists in debates over important national issues.
And Gene Grant and the Line opinion panelists look at the final week of the legislative session. They also examine the 30-day suspension of UNM football coach Bob Davie, and debate the cause of the rising demand for medical marijuana in New Mexico.
