3-8-23 Alert

Good Morning, New Mexico Activists:

If you’d planned to attend the Senate Finance hearing on SB 493 Brackish Water Reuse this afternoon, please be advised that they’ve moved the hearing to 9:30 a.m. this morning!  It feels a little sneaky – this change was made last night at 8:15, and we just noticed it this morning. In any case, it’s today, 9:30 a.m. in Room 322. If you’re not familiar with the bill, you can read Paul’s March 1 blog about it at this link. If you haven’t yet emailed or called committee members, go to this link and scroll down to the last quarter of the page to find Senate Finance.

REMINDER: We’d love to see you tonight, 6-7 p.m., in our Legislative Huddle via Zoom! Register at this link.

Another change made last night: House Judiciary will hear SB 53 Storage of Certain Radioactive Waste today, Weds., March 8, 1:30 p.m., Room 309. SB 53 would prohibit state agencies from issuing permits to store high-level radioactive waste. You’ll find talking points at the link in the bill title above. This is the last committee stop before it goes for a final vote on the House Floor! Please call and email this morning to urge committee members to vote “YES” on SB 53.
