NM Environment Department (under the Gov.’s control) gives award to legislator(s)

You never know what you’ll find on social media. The following is a Facebook post from New Mexico Senator Siah Correa Hemphill, a Democrat. Interestingly, she is touting an award she received for “supporting the Gov.’s initiatives.”

MLG has never been much for separation of powers considering her ongoing use of New Mexico’s “emergency” laws which have been renewed time and again without legislative participation. Now, the New Mexico Environment Department (under the Gov.’s control) is apparently giving awards to friendly legislators who carry the Gov.’s water on various environmental issues.
