Gov. Susana Martinez hasn’t yet acted on legislation from the legislative session that concluded Saturday to balance the budget, but she’s not happy.
One of the biggest winners was President Donald Trump, but plenty of other people left a mark on the session as winners or losers.
This session’s disharmony was particularly notable because it included skirmishes between the governor and some lawmakers of her own party.
One bill would have raised the minimum wage to $9 an hour, and the other called for an increase to $9.25.
The governor’s staff says she is also considering a shutdown of nonessential government services to conserve cash until there is a budget.
Three Senate bills the governor signed late Friday have the same sponsor — Gay Kernan, R-Hobbs.
