Santa Fe, NM- House Bill 33, a measure that would create in-state meat inspection in New Mexico unanimously passed the House of Representatives. The bipartisan legislation sponsored by Representatives Rebecca Dow (R-TorC), Gail Armstrong (R-Magdalena), Moe Maestas (D-Albuquerque), and Andres Romero (D-Albuquerque) is an effort to establish in-state meat inspections in New Mexico.
