“If we’re not there, we do not have a voice.”
New Mexico’s first Black state senator shares his journey to the seat.
Fighting For Veterans And Military Families – Yesterday, I passed two key Military Family bills out of their first committee – SB 271 and SB 272. SB 271 (The Purple Star Public School Program) will ease the transition of students of military families who move schools while SB 272 (Advanced School Enrollment) will allow military families to enroll children in school prior to their physical presence in the State. I am also introducing SB 277 – Military Retirement Tax Exemption, this Thursday. All of these bills look out for our veterans, and the first two passed with broad bi-partisan support in committee.
