New Mexico curfew legislation moves forward

The New Mexico Roundhouse - 2015 Legislative Session

SANTA FE (KRQE) – Two state lawmakers moved forward Wednesday with proposed curfew legislation in New Mexico.

They pre-filed House Bill 29 which would allow cities and counties to enact curfew ordinances for those 16 years old and younger. The bill provides exceptions for those participating in a school function or if they are with a parent or guardian.

Other lawmakers have expressed concerns about curfews in the past, saying it could lead to profiling.
