January 4, 2019 – 2019 will be a pivotal year for New Mexico. For starters, we have a new Governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham. And, we’re also looking at more than a billion dollars in new money in the state coffers. The upcoming 60-day legislative session will no doubt dominate the headlines early on in 2019, but there are plenty of other important stories to pay attention to as well. Host Gene Grant and a special Line panel of all working journalists lay out some predictions for the New Year, and preview some of the issues and people that will dominate their work in the year to come.
