New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez recently broke out her veto pen for the first time as governor. This week on New Mexico in Focus, lawmakers talk candidly about what the Governor signed and what she axed out of this year's legislative session.
KNME's one hour public affairs show New Mexico in Focus airs Fridays at 7 p.m. and Sundays at 6:30a.m. on KNME, Channel 5.1. The show can also be seen on KNME's Digital Channel 9.1 on Saturdays at 5 p.m.
The Line panelists are also ready to weigh in with their thoughts and opinions on the final outcomes of the 60-day session. There's also an impassioned discussion about the suddenly worsening budget problem for New Mexico school districts and the passing of a longtime lawmaker.
Wrapping things up, NMiF goes behind the scenes of one of the state's most creative and innovative events, the "Experiments in Cinema" film festival sponsored by Basement Films and the UNM Department of Cinematic Arts.
