In a move to further keep the public away from the Roundhouse during the Special Session of the Legislature rumored for December 6, “proof of full vaccination will be required for any member of the public to enter the Capitol building in Santa Fe during the upcoming special session and regular session,” according to KOB 4. The reconvening of the Legislature is meant for redistricting, which is done every ten years following the Census.
Despite scandal-ridden alleged serial groper Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham claiming “fully vaccinated” is “three shots” — two regular shots and a booster — the Piñon Post has learned from the Legislative Council Service (LCS) that they are going by CDC guidelines. CDC guidelines define“fully vaccinated” as two weeks following the second Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 shot. It will not require a COVID booster shot.
Raúl Burciaga, director of the New Mexico Legislative Council Service said, “Given the high number of COVID-19 cases across the state and the strain this continues to put on state resources, it is incumbent on us to protect everyone in the Capitol complex while conducting the state’s business,” He added, “I believe the measures being taken for the special and regular sessions will allow for the work to get done while greatly minimizing the risk for COVID spread.”
The new rules according to KOB:
- The Roundhouse will remain open to members of the public for the special and regular sessions.
- Proof of full vaccination will be required for any member of the public to enter the Capitol.
- The Rotunda will not be used for displays, booths, presentations, special days, etc.
- Pages will not be used by the House or Senate.
- No tours will be conducted or allowed in the Capitol.
- Masks will continue to be required throughout the Capitol Complex.
As well as the extreme “COVID” mandates at the Roundhouse, leftist legislators rammed through a gun ban on most firearms at the Capitol, which can be read more about here.
According to the LCS, the special session will be held both in-person and virtually.
