SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Gov. Susana Martinez has signed a measure into law to provide more than $5 million for costs of the 30-day legislative session.
The legislation, which is known by lawmakers as the "feed bill," was signed yesterday.
The measure also provides $16 million for the Legislature's year-round operations.
The governor used her line-item veto powers to eliminate a provision that would have provided flexibility to the Legislative Council Service and others, such as the Legislative Finance Committee, to make adjustments within their budgets next year.
