How does a bill become law in New Mexico?
What are the Democratic priorities for the 2019 Legislative Session, now that we have a Democratic governor and Democratic majorities in the Roundhouse?
This is an exciting legislative year for New Mexico! Please join Senator Daniel Ivey-Soto, Vice Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Cliff Rees, Director of Policy and Legislative Liaison for Lt. Governor Howie C. Morales, as they preview legislative priorities such as education, health care, and good government and present the process by which these bills can become law.
Wednesday, January 16, 6-7:30 pm at 1420 Cerrillos Road, Santa Fe. All are welcome!
Congratulations to our Congressman, Ben Ray Luján, for his election to the #4 post on the House Democratic leadership team. As Marg Elliston, Chair of the Democratic Party of New Mexico, said, “New Mexico is lucky to have leaders who deliver for New Mexicans and also represent us proudly in the leadership of the Democratic Party. Ben Ray Luján led the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee to the most remarkable Democratic victory in history and I cannot wait to see what he achieves as assistant leader.”
Ben Ray always says, “When we work together, we win together,” and this year was proof! New Mexico Democrats worked HARD and more New Mexicans voted in this election than any previous midterm election. Now it’s time to celebrate YOU and what we accomplished together because we’re just getting started!
The Congressman will be in attendance at this event to thank the volunteers who worked tirelessly to get out the vote. Seasonal refreshments provided (hot cider, hot chocolate, biscochitos, and other enticing snacks).
If you’re interested in helping Governor-Elect Michelle Lujan Grisham and Lieutenant Governor-Elect Howie Morales build a stronger New Mexico, you can apply for an exempt position in their administration at this website.
From the SF Reporter article on MLG’s appointment of former Senator Jeff Bingaman to lead her transition team: ‘I want the best and the brightest,’ Lujan Grisham said, pointing repeatedly to a website she’d set up to gather applicants for the transition.”
Join the rapid response protest in Santa Fe at the Railyard (Water Tower), TODAY, Nov. 8, at 5 pm.
By replacing Rod Rosenstein with just-named Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker as special counsel Robert Mueller’s boss on the investigation, Trump has undercut the independence of the investigation. Whitaker has publicly outlined strategies to stifle the investigation and cannot be allowed to remain in charge of it. The Nobody Is Above the Law network demands that Whitaker immediately commit not to assume supervision of the investigation.
This is our moment to stand up to protect our democracy. Please join us.
