Gov. statement on House passage of public safety legislation

Feb 10, 2020 | Press Releases

SANTA FE – Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Monday issued the following statement after House Bill 6, a bipartisan package of legislation intended to address and improve public safety in communities all across New Mexico, advanced through the full House on a bipartisan vote of 59-9:

“I have been consistent and clear that violent crime is an urgent issue in our state. I have been clear that inaction is unacceptable, and I have activated my administration, at different junctures over the last year, to take aggressive and proactive steps to mitigate and address the crime in our communities and to bolster local law enforcement efforts. So I am glad the Legislature is listening to New Mexicans and is moving to not only hold criminals accountable but to provide law enforcement with the tools and support they need.”
