Statement from House Majority Leader Stapleton on Vetoes of House Bills 124, and 125

 

Santa Fe, N.M. –

 

“Guaranteeing that our state has the ability to attract and retain exceptional educators who can provide to our students the highest quality education possible, remains a top priority for myself and House Democrats in the legislature. We are facing a crisis when it comes to education in this state, due to years of cuts and actions by our governor that undermine the ability of our educators to perform at their best. Both of these vetoes are just the latest in a long list of slights against our teachers from the executive that go against our values as New Mexicans of ensuring a high-quality education for all of our kids.”
