This week on New Mexico in Focus, the Line examines the latest education efforts put forth by the legislature, what they'll cost and what the likelihood is of becoming law. Also, with rumors out of the nation's capital that suggest the nation's strategic nuclear missile fleet could be cut in half, the group looks at any possible implications on New Mexico's labs.
