Speaker Egolf Praises Passage of Comprehensive, Bipartisan Public Safety Package

Santa Fe – Today, Speaker Egolf (D-Santa Fe) praised the House Floor for passing a comprehensive, public safety package sponsored by both Republican and Democratic legislators. This package is a bipartisan effort to keep New Mexico communities safe by using a comprehensive framework that addresses crime across the entire criminal justice system.

“We have worked very hard to change the culture at the Legislature so that New Mexicans can trust in the ability of this House to put our differences aside and protect New Mexico communities. Today is a proud day for the House,” said Speaker of the House Brian Egolf.

The package includes bills sponsored by Reps. Nate Gentry (R-Albuquerque), Antonio “Moe” Maestas (D-Albuquerque), David E. Adkins (R-Albuquerque), Reps. Elizabeth Thomson (D-Albuquerque), and Daymon Ely (D-Corrales). The Public Safety Package now moves to the New Mexico Senate for consideration.
