The 2022 Legislative Session begins Jan. 18 and ends Feb. 17 and new safety policies announced Tuesday include a requirement of proof of vaccination against COVID-19 for all who enter the Roundhouse in Santa Fe.

New Mexico House Speaker Brian Egolf released the following statement Tuesday on the new safety policies:

“Virtual participation in the legislative process will continue while the policies announced today allow for the safe reopening of our state’s Capitol to all New Mexicans so they have the access they deserve to their elected leaders and the legislative process.

The past two years have brought much change due to the pandemic and security concerns related to dangerous partisan rhetoric and the Jan. 6 insurrectionists, but none of this will stop us from doing the people’s work.”
