|RPNM Statement Following Conclusion of the Legislative Session|
|Chairman Pearce commends Republican successes—says, “We saw tremendous grassroots engagement from people around the state.”
Albuquerque, March 18th — Today marks the end of the first session of the fifty-sixth legislature. Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman and former Congressman Steve Pearce issued the following statement:
“We knew progressives would take advantage of their majority in the legislature to push through their radical agenda this session. However, despite being in the minority, Republicans successfully passed beneficial legislation and halted other unconstitutional bills from becoming law.
Notably, Republicans led the charge in amending the Medical Malpractice Act, working through a bipartisan effort allowing doctors to stay insured in New Mexico. Republicans also stalled unconstitutional gun bills and fought against bills that would undermine parental rights over their children.
This session, we saw tremendous grassroots engagement from people around the state contacting the legislature, signing petitions, and attending hearings at the Roundhouse. New Mexicans showed they would not sit back and let progressives infringe on their rights.
We commend all the Republican legislators who worked tirelessly through the late nights and early mornings to uphold their oath of office and deliver hope for New Mexicans.”
