RESTORE OUR REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT
There are two bills this session to restrict Governor Lujan’s power during declared health emergencies. The majority of people do not want ONE person to have that much power without approval from the legislator. Both bills require approval from the legislator after a specified time, with SB 74 being the better bill. However, HB 139 has Democrat and Republican support.
Vote yes on HB 139, but with the following amendments:
1. Reduce the time frame for the initial Hazard Emergency Management Act from 90 to 60.
2. Reduce the Hazard Emergency Management Act extension from 60 to 30 days.
