The Bill of The Beast?

My story about Rep. Mimi Stewart's HB383, which would commit New Mexico's electoral votes to the winner of the national popular vote, can be found HERE.

This isn't the first time this bill has been floated in the New Mexico Legislature. The late Sen. Ben Altamirano tried it two years ago and it never even got a floor vote.

But maybe it wasn't the content of Altamirano's bill that was the problem. Perhaps it was the bill number that put people off: Senate Bill 666.

(No disrespect for the much-loved Sen. Altamirano. Nobody would ever describe him as "beastly.")

But seriously folks ... For more information on the national effort behind this bill, check HERE.
