Jim Crawford Provides Legislative Votes and Some Analysis

Now that the legislative dust has settled in Santa Fe, I have attached a table I made for the voting records of the 5 legislators covering most of Valencia County and the action by the governor.  It is a short hand list of all the bills that passed both houses.  I have highlighted the bills that we made comments on.  We commented on 93 bills.  We opposed 60 of them.  Four we supported passed both houses and all were signed but one which was vetoed.  Nine of the bills we opposed passed both houses and 5 were signed, 3 were vetoed, and one is still in limbo and not yet recorded on the web site.
