    SANTA FE — Nearly 26,000 New Mexicans are having health plans terminated at the end of the year because the insurance policies fail to provide expanded benefits and other coverage mandated by a federal health care law, according to insurance industry officials.

    State Insurance Superintendent John Franchini estimates most of those individual policyholders will pay an average of 35 percent more for new coverage, but will have plans with more benefits.

  • Appeals court got it wrong

    The state Court of Appeals missed the boat on its recent ruling about who is required to report suspected child abuse and neglect in New Mexico.

    Their tortured interpretation of the state statute ignores the plain language of the law. Worse yet, it places New Mexico’s children at risk.

    It’s no wonder that both Gov. Susana Martinez and Democratic Attorney General Gary King are both blasting the ruling, telling The Associated Press that it is a foolish decision that puts children in danger.

    The Lady Cardinals, AKA “Beastie Girls,” finished 14-6 overall. Saturday’s contest marked only the second time all fall they’ve lost at home.
