Getting a Little Testy?

It looks like Senate Democrats are getting a little snippy about the recent attention to the proposed constitutional amendments to reform the Public Regulation Commission.

The Senate Majority Caucus just released this statement:

"The bills on PRC reform are all in a similar place as all bills that have been referred from the House. HJRs 11,16, and 17 will all be heard in the committee at the call of the chair, and will be brought to the floor if and when they are passed through the appropriate committees.

We need to be deliberative and thoughtful anytime changes are made to the New Mexico constitution, and that will be the case with PRC reform."

You can see the story my colleague Trip Jennings wrote about the PRC proposals HERE. He quoted Senate Majority Leader Michael Sanchez saying, "I'm not sure if they're going to make it to the [Senate] floor."
