A definite potpourri of legislative topics for you today, starting with an update on proposals to deal with the learning loss caused by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We also talk about some movement regarding predatory lending practices in New Mexico, which spurred several hours of debate yesterday in the Roundhouse. Our partners at the Santa Fe Reporter have done a lot of great reporting on the issues that are wrapped up in that debate, and we encourage you to read up on that background when you can. We also referenced a report by the Albuquerque Journal’s Dan McKay about the complicated topic of reforming medical malpractice laws in our state, and some pushback from industry folks around plans to reform liquor licensing practices. As always, let us know what you are seeing and hearing in this most unusual session, and join us again for another update tomorrow morning!
