“This lawsuit is simply the latest in a string of baseless attempts by House Republicans to derail the legislature from delivering the relief and recovery legislation that New Mexicans deserve,” said House Rules & Order of Business Committee Chairman Rep. Daymon Ely (D – Corrales). “We had sincerely hoped that a commitment to public health was a value shared by every member – even after one of our own, and staff, tested positive. Sadly, it is not. We will not let political distractions stop our government from conducting the people’s business.”
