Santa Fe, N.M. – Statement issued by Speaker of the House Brian Egolf in response to the Governor’s veto of Senate Bill 176:

“In this situation, the stakes are too high to engage in political gamesmanship. The paychecks of hardworking New Mexicans are at stake and we will not engage in divisive political rhetoric. We must honor our commitment to the hardworking staff of the Legislative branch so that we can focus on the challenges before us – creating the jobs that are desperately needed in our state and turning around our state’s dismal economy.”
