New Mexico in Focus visits the Roundhouse in Santa Fe with correspondent Gwyneth Doland during the first week of the 2015 legislative session. NMiF examines falling oil prices and their impact on businesses and the state budget, and also gathers information on legislation that aims to increase the disclosure requirements for lobbyists in New Mexico.
The program airs Friday nights at 7 p.m. on channel 5.1 and appears online on the NMiF website shortly thereafter. The show rebroadcasts Saturday at 5 p.m. on channel 9.1 and again on Sunday at 7 a.m. on channel 5.1.
Also on NMiF, Host Gene Grant and The Line opinion panelists discuss Governor Martinez's State of the State address. The governor highlights her priorities for education and economic development on the opening day of this year's 60 day session. She also calls for bipartisanship in lawmaking channels.
