November 1, 2019 – Gene Grant and The Line opinion panelists discuss Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s request of lawmakers for their input on legislative priorities for 2020. The upcoming legislative session is a short one – only thirty days – and devising a budget is lawmakers’ number one priority. There is room, however, for other bill proposals, if Lujan Grisham puts them on the docket. The Line speculates on which ones might make the cut.
