House rejects two vetoes, following Senate’s move

SANTA FE, N.M. — The state House joined the Senate early Friday morning by announcing that two of its bills are law, despite the governor’s veto.

House Majority Leader Sheryl Williams Stapleton, D-Albuquerque, said the governor’s vetoes of two House bills came too late to block the legislation.

The bills in questions are House Bills 126, which centers on medical student loans, and 144, which focuses on industrial hemp.

Gov. Susana Martinez, of course, says her vetoes are legally valid.
