This week, New Mexico in Focus acknowledges Albuquerque's new designation as a 2030 District. 2030 Districts are regions within the United States where local business leaders take steps to address climate change by reducing water use and carbon emissions.

NMiF producer Sarah Gustavus meets with Holly Carey, program manager of the Albuquerque 2030 District, to hear her goals for Albuquerque.

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.

Lyft ridesharing company recently announced it will no longer service the state of New Mexico. Host Gene Grant and the Line Opinion panelists discuss the impact of these services in New Mexico. Uber, the main competitor of Lyft nationwide still operates in New Mexico.

The Line will also discuss proposals to raise the national minimum wage and the latest news on the proposed Santolina development in southwestern Albuquerque.
