Gov. Signs Conference Committees Bill

This press release just came in:

SANTA FE – Governor Bill Richardson today signed House Bill 393, which opens legislative conference committees to the public. Conference committees are formed by legislative leaders to reconcile differences in bills passed by the House and Senate.

“I have always maintained that this is a decision that should be made by the Legislature, without involvement by the Executive Branch,” Governor Richardson said. “Nevertheless, the Legislature chose this path and I have signed the bill out of respect for its desire to further open the committee process to the public.

“Despite the flaws in the bill, the public wins with an open process,” Governor Richardson said.

Don't say I didn't tell you so

And let me say again:

BOB JOHNSON, THOU ART AVENGED!

    Would love to hear your comments/analysis on why these nine bills passed both houses but were not acted on by the Governor, i.e. "pocket vetoed". The nine bills are:

    HB 130 (Stewart) MEDICAID & CHILD HEALTH INSURANCE REPORTING

    HB 351 (Varela) RETIREE HEALTH CARE FUND CONTRIBUTIONS

    HB 534 (Chavez, E.) ELECTRONIC PUBLIC RECORDS REQUESTS
