Speaker Brian Egolf's Statement on the Governor's Post Special Session Actions

Santa Fe, N.M. –

“New Mexicans were counting on their elected officials to come together and put New Mexicans first during this Special Session, and I believe we have done that. With the Governor’s signature on a bipartisan budget that restores funding for higher education and the legislature, we can now move forward with laying down a framework that puts job creation and education at the center of economic development and investment in our kids. Despite the success of the bipartisan budget, I am dismayed that commonsense legislation to create sustained revenue, and provide over $100 million in new money for Medicaid, as well as efforts to level the playing field for small businesses and hospitals will have to wait another year to become law."
