RPNM Chairman On Judge’s Order To Temporarily Reopen Restaurants

Posted On July 20, 2020

The following is Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman Steve Pearce’s statement regarding a New Mexico judge’s temporary restraining order forcing Gov. Lujan Grisham to temporarily stop her amended Public Health Order banning in-house dining at restaurants. The decision is the result of a lawsuit filed by the New Mexico Restaurant Association. The short-term ban will remain in place until a hearing on July 30.

Here’s the Chairman’s statement:

“Today’s court order demonstrates once again that the governor cannot make up the rules day-to-day when it comes to her Public Health Order.  We have said all along that restaurants and other mom-and-pop businesses have been singled out unjustly during this pandemic. While this temporary restraining order will help restaurants for the time being, the governor’s inequitable and punishing decisions these past few months have done irreparable damage to hundreds of restaurants and other small establishments. The economic survival for many of these restaurants continues to hang in the balance.”
