ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez has called a special session on a $295 million public works package and other proposals that died on the Legislature’s last day.
Martinez sent out a proclamation late Friday that calls for lawmakers to report to Santa Fe on Monday at noon in an attempt to pass a capital outlay bill.
Also expected to be discussed are tax breaks and short-term funding to address shortfalls in the state court system and the Health Department.
Lawmakers failed to pass the measures in March amid public bickering.
It’s unclear if lawmakers will take up proposals on mental health treatment reform and ride-booking services.
Senate Majority Leader Michael Sanchez, a Democrat, says the session will hopefully only last a day.
