October 23, 2020 Gene Grant and The Line opinion panelists look how Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham continues to try to bring down record-breaking coronavirus case numbers by restricting – but not shutting down – business throughout the state. New rules that go into effect Oct. 23 include a 10:00 p.m. closing time for retail shops and mandatory certification for restaurants and other businesses to operate. The panelists debate the governor’s approach, whether she is doing enough to beat down the rising numbers, and whether more – or less – should be done. 

Host: Gene Grant
