NMiF: The Line Panel - State Senator Withdraws Bill After Donations Come To Light

March 17, 2017 - State Senator Steven Neville withdrew one of his bills this week after learning that the company that would benefit from the business deal had donated to Governor Susana Martinez's campaign and Political Action Committee but those donations were not disclosed during debates in committee and on the Senate floor. We heard from Sen. Neville at the Roundhouse this week (link to Gwyneth's story). Host Gene Grant and the Line opinion panelists discuss how this issue might be perceived by the public and how it fits in ongoing debates about ethics in New Mexico state government.
