ALBUQUERQUE — A lot of fresh faces will appear at the New Mexico Legislature next year as nearly a third of the state’s legislative seats will be turned over to someone new.
The Albuquerque Journal reported that 35 of the Legislature’s 112 lawmakers are new to the Legislature, have changed chambers or returned after having served in the past.
That’s the biggest turnover since 1985, when there were also 35 fresh faces, according to the Legislative Council Service.
