Late-night bill passage flouts current NM policy

Santa Fe, NM– In another late-night session Democrats quickly rushed through SB 137 which allows any person to obtain an occupational license regardless of citizenship or immigration status. While Democrats framed it as a bill to help DACA beneficiaries, the legislation in fact does not have limitation on who may benefit from the late-night bill. SB 137 was sent to only one committee for review by the Speaker before it was debated by the body with few days left to wrap up the 30-day session.
