Negotiations have failed again and Gov. Susana Martinez has no plans to call a special session to consider more than $260 million in funding for public works projects.
Martinez spokesman Chris Sanchez says the governor met twice Thursday with Senate Finance Committee chair John Arthur Smith in an attempt to forge a compromise.
Later in the day, the Senate Democrats renewed their call for a special session.
Lawmakers failed to agree on the capital outlay projects during the regular session.
