Governor Vetoes Healthcare Facility Operation in Valencia County

Local Senators denounce pithy display of partisanship 

SANTA FE – In what can only be described as a fit of partisanship, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham today vetoed legislation for a healthcare facility in Valencia County. House Bill 240 – sponsored by Republican Senators Greg Baca and Joshua Sanchez, and Republican Representatives Kelly Fajardo, Alonzo Baldonado, and Gail Armstrong – would have allowed revenue generated from a 2006 local mill levy to be used for the operation of a 24-hour emergency healthcare facility licensed as a remote location of an acute care hospital. The bill unanimously passed the House of Representatives (67-0) and the Senate (41-0).
