Understanding and Preventing Domestic Violence, Health Insurance Coverage in Jeopardy & Industrialization of the Greater Chaco Landscape

This week on New Mexico in Focus, Gene Grant and the Line Opinion Panel discuss a record-setting weekend of domestic violence calls in the city of Albuquerque. Plus, the panel also talks through the potential that thousands of New Mexicans could lose their preferred health insurance if a deal isn’t reached between UnitedHealthcare and Lovelace. And the panelists weigh in on a recent State Supreme Court decision validating the new appointment process for the New Mexico Public Regulations Commission.  

Senior Producer Lou DiVizio speaks with a former family court judge and a mental health expert and advocate about some of the common misconceptions when it comes to domestic violence and contributing factors.  

Our Land Senior Producer Laura Paskus travels to northwest New Mexico to talk with the Energy and Climate Program Manager with the San Juan Citizens Alliance about plans to expand oil and gas drilling near the Greater Chaco Landscape.
