What's going on, Albuquerque?
Gov. Martinez may be "cleaning" her own house, but she is making sure that New Mexico will be filthy dirty with nasty energy industry emissions. I have to say that Gov. Martinez' moves in the first week have me very, very concerned. She is setting about moving New Mexico back to the days before the Clean Air and Water Act. Guess those big energy industry contributors are getting their money's worth!
Oh, and as for same-sex marriage? Yep, a state senator is introducing legislation to ban any and all same-sex marriages in NM. Martinez will be sure to sign that bill, if it makes it through the legislature. Then the state will have to pay to defend against lawsuits they will surely lose.
I'm with you, OBTS. The "freeze" on regulations is really troubling. The state may face economic hardships, but a lot of these regulations are in place to protect the most vulnerable of our citizens. As an example, regulations on predatory lenders are bad for business, but they protect lower income people from short-term, high-interest loans that in the long run put them in a worse position.
And let's not even start on the long-term impact of repealing environmental regulations.
Also, the story on the UNMH shooter just makes my jaw drop. You're in the hospital for your infant child, who just got out of SURGERY, and you get in a fight with the baby's mother that escalates into gunfire? What's wrong with you that you'd bring a gun to a hospital in the first place?
It could have been a lot worse, though. I suppose the baby could've ended up with a dead mother and a father in prison. Let's hope Mama has better sense than the old man.
From yesterday's amazing 10 year old story - here's a more amazing 10 year old (to me , anyway) - must be something about that age....
