SANTA FE — Sen. Jeff Steinborn passed bipartisan legislation through the Senate Judiciary Committee Saturday to end the practice of coyote killing contests in New Mexico.
“Today New Mexico is one step closer to banning inhumane coyote killing contests. This blood sport serves no purpose in the management of coyotes other than killing for the sake of killing. It’s time to make these contests a thing of the past,” Sen. Steinborn said.
This bill now goes to the senate floor for final passage and then, if passed, to the House for consideration in that body.

I can imagine Devon having a little mental conversation with himself when he obtained that gun, “Oh! wait a minute, I can’t posses guns, I’m a felon!”, and poof, another possible criminal activity is thwarted by yet another rock solid gun law.

SANTA FE – House Bill 106, Baby Changing Facilities in Men’s Rooms, passed on a 44-22 vote Friday evening. Sponsored by Rep. Andrés Romero (D-Albuquerque), the bill would require that all new construction or major renovations of restrooms in public places include baby changing stations in both the women’s and men’s bathrooms.
“It’s about time we recognize the role that both parents play in raising children,” Romero said. “I’m glad we are one step closer for mothers and fathers to both have a safe, designated space to change their babies.”
