STATE News:

SANTA FE – Today, the Santa Fe District Court ruled against the governor’s unconstitutional vetoes of 10 bills that were passed during the 2017 regular legislative session, stating they should become law.

Speaker Brian Egolf issued the following statement:

“This case was about computer science opportunities for school kids, economic development in agriculture, and defending the state’s constitution. Today’s ruling is a victory for our youth, our farmers, our communities and our constitution.”

At dispute was the fact that no objections were included in the governor’s original veto messages of all 10 bills – a constitutional requirement. A full listing of the vetoed bills can be viewed here.
