March 9 was a deadline for Gov. Susana Martinez. That was her last day to either sign into law measures passed in the recently adjourned legislative session or kill them off with a veto.
According to nmpoliticalreport.com, 101 bills were passed during the session that ended a month ago. Among the meatier measures to make it to the governor’s desk for her signature:
• A $6.4 billion state budget, trimmed down because of a serious drop in oil and gas tax revenues.
