On Wednesday, the Democrats’ S.B. 1, sponsored by far-left Senate Pro-Tem Sen. Mimi Stewart (D-Bernalillo), which is an election year bill to raise teachers’ salaries, passed the Senate Education Committee by a vote of 11-0. It is suspect the Democrats only submitted such legislation in 2022 — an election year — while other non-germane legislation, such as legalizing recreational marijuana got its own special session last year to ram it through.
No Committee date has been given to S.B. 8 yet, which is a third-world-style election bill to rip all voting protections away from New Mexico’s voting system — leaving a gaping hole open for ballot harvesting, stuffing, and automatically sending people absentee ballots. The Piñon Post will keep you up-to-date on the latest regarding this bill.
On Tuesday, Democrats killed a GOP bill, H.B. 48 to eliminate the double-taxation of Social Security income to senior citizens. The bill died on a 4-4 tie vote, with all but one Democrat — Rep. Miguel Garcia (D-Bernalillo) — voting against the commonsense bill. GOP legislators have also filed H.B. 49, which is a duplicate bill eliminating social security double-taxation in New Mexico. It has yet to make the committee calendar.
State Rep. Stefani Lord (R-Sandia Park) dropped a bill, H.J.R. 12, on Wednesday to allow recall of all elected leaders in New Mexico. It is unclear if Democrats will allow it to get to a committee, much less pass a single chamber. If passed and signed, it would go to the voters for final approval at the next election.
Far-left state Rep. Patricia Roybal Caballero (D-Bernalillo) proposed H.B. 156, which would make felons of gun owners who own firearms with “a magazine, box, drum, tube, feed strip or other container that is capable of holding more than fifteen rounds of ammunition to be fed continuously and directly into a semi-automatic firearm.” The bill reads, “A person who violates this section is guilty of a fourth degree felony.”
Here is a Thursday bill hearing you need to know about:
Anti-gun H.B. 9 by Rep. Pamelya Herndon (D-Bernalillo)
On Thursday at 1:30 p.m., the House Consumer and Public Affairs Committee will be considering H.B. 9, by Democrat ballot harvester and Rep. Pamelya Herndon (D-Bernalillo), a radical anti-gun bill that would mandate citizens to lock up their guns.
“It is unlawful for a person who keeps or stores a firearm to do so in such manner that the firearm is accessed by a minor without the authorization of the minor’s parent or guardian or when used in the commission of a crime,” the bill reads.
It continues, “When a firearm is accessed by a minor and used in the commission of a crime, the person who keeps or stores the firearm commits unlawful access to a firearm by a minor and is guilty of a misdemeanor.”
Please show up to testify against this radical anti-gun bill. The meeting details are below:
