Senate Democrats Refuse to Allow Vote on Vital Balance of Power Legislation

SANTA FE — Senate Democrats today refused to allow a vote on Senate Bill 74, sponsored by Republican Leader, Senator Greg Baca (District 29-Bernalillo and Valencia). Senate Bill 74 seeks to give the Legislature a check on the Governor’s ability to indefinitely extend public health orders and emergency declarations. As the law currently stands, the Governor has the sole power to issue and extend these orders, with no input from the legislative branch of government.
