Lujan Grisham on 2024 Session & APD Corruption Update

This week on New Mexico in Focus, correspondent Gwyneth Doland speaks with Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham about the ongoing legislative session and asks how her favored bills are faring in the Roundhouse. We then turn our attention to a high-profile pretrial detention bill that died before reaching a full Senate or House vote. Lujan Grisham tells us that some version of the bill might find life again during this year’s session. Additionally, we break down support and opposition for the bill with District Attorney Sam Bregman state Sen. Peter Wirth.   

Then, Executive Producer Jeff Proctor asks reporters Elise Kaplan of City Desk ABQ and the Albuquerque Journal’s Matt Reisen to update us on the ongoing FBI investigation of the Albuquerque Police Department’s DWI unit. It’s a fast-moving story with updates nearly every day, so we ask the reporters to break down what we know and don’t, as well as what the future might bring from this explosive story. 

Plus, Our Land’s Laura Paskus sits down with Jeff and previews her environmental coverage for 2024, as she reports on the ways climate change continues to throw new obstacles our state’s way and how New Mexicans can adapt.
