Redistricting Wranglings at the Roundhouse

December 17, 2021 With redistricting decisions very much in flux, the Line Opinion Panel explores the issues standing in the way of New Mexico lawmakers. Will legislators truly consider the input of Tribal Nations, and if not, what could the legal ramifications be? Panelists give their take on that, and the possibility of Albuquerque being split into three separate congressional districts.  

Host: Gene Grant 

Line Opinion Panelists: 
Dede Feldman, former state senator 
Laura Sanchez, attorney 
Merritt Allen, Vox Optima Public Relations
