Senate Boss Michael Sanchez, who Represents DWI Offenders, Kills Anti-DWI Legislation
Santa Fe, NM – While a package of House bills toughening laws against DWI in New Mexico languish in the Senate, Senate Democrat Boss Michael Sanchez has represented well over 100 DWI offenders, many of them repeat offenders with three or four offenses.
“Once again, Sanchez is looking out for his own pocketbook and the rights of the repeat DWI offenders his law firm represents rather than the innocent New Mexicans endangered by his inaction,” said Republican Party of New Mexico Spokesman Tucker Keene, “Sanchez has the power to put these bills to a vote in the Senate, and we hope that for once he sides with the families that would be protected by this legislation and not the criminals looking to escape accountability for their actions.”
With just eight days left in the 2016 legislative session, the Senate is running out of time to act on the proposed bills. The Republican Party of New Mexico urges Sanchez and the Senate to quit stalling and pass HB 81, HB 82 and HB 83 to help keep Sanchez’s dangerous clients off the roads and protect our families.
