I’d much rather see a 30-day limit on governor’s emergency declarations, but if this is the best on offer, I’d take it. Thanks for the whole list, Paul!
With a Democrat majority in Legislature, the Democrats would keep extending emergency powers. Bill needs to stop emergency powers after 60 days PERIOD! That type of bill wouldn’t pass now but if we ever have a crack at it with a republican governor it must get done.
Totally agree, but SOME kind of limitation now is critical. Hopefully the GOP in NM eventually figures out a way to win some elections.
