The Governor’s Signing Day Decisions

4.14.23 Gene Grant and The Line Opinion Panel react to Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s decisions on last week’s bill-signing deadline. The governor signed more than 200 bills the Legislature sent to her desk, but not without some significant alterations. Among the bills she didn’t sign was a measure to create a new civil rights division within the Attorney General’s Office that would have, among other mandates, served as a check on the state’s troubled Children Youth and Families Department. 

Host: Gene Grant 

Line Opinion Panelists: 
Michael Bird, former president of the American Public Health Association  
Tom Garrity, founder & president, The Garrity Group Public Relations  
Giovanna Rossi, president, Collective Action Strategies, LLC
