SANTA FE – A bill aimed at shining more light on how much money New Mexico spends on settling allegations of discrimination within state government is being brought back for the upcoming 30-day legislative session – with the backing of Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s administration.
Sen. Sander Rue, R-Albuquerque, recently said he’s been working on the issue with General Services Secretary Ken Ortiz and other legislators, and said the bill would be an improved version of the measure that passed the Senate last year, but ultimately stalled in the House.
“We’ve had everybody together at the table,” Rue said. “I think we’ve got the wind at our back.”
