Former Democratic state Rep. David Salman, known for his interest in education, has died. He was 74.
The House, which convened in a special budget session Monday, held a moment of silence for Salman, who represented the Las Vegas area.
He died Sunday in Albuquerque, said his wife, Marilyn. She declined to release a cause of death but said he had not been ill.
Salman was in the House from 1969 to 1978, serving as majority floor leader from 1971 to 1978.
