Proposed Crime Bills Hurt New Mexicans

New criminal offenses and increasing criminal penalties hurt New Mexicans and New Mexico –and here’s why!

Talking points for us to use when contacting our NM Legislators!
Legislative Session, January 18 – February 17, 2022

“Tough on Crime” – In this legislative session, January 18 through 17, the legislative agenda is restricted to bills related to money – i.e., taxation and appropriation – plus any other bills the governor sets before the legislature. If history is a guide, Governor Lujan Grisham will send a number of bills to the legislature that either create new criminal offenses or increase penalties for existing offenses, or both.

These are “bad bills” – Most of the Democrats in the legislature know that these bills are ill-advised. Nonetheless, most will vote for the bills if and when they are called upon to vote. In many cases, enough Democrats will join the Republicans to pass these bad bills.
