SANTA FE – Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham today delivered a prerecorded State of the State address in which she praised her response to the COVID-19 pandemic and highlighted her agenda for the current Legislative Session. Senate Republican leaders released the following statement in response to the Governor’s address:

“The COVID-19 pandemic and heavy-handed actions by the Governor have wreaked havoc on our state, forcing thousands out of work, shuttering hundreds of local businesses, and keeping our children out of school. While we are pleased that the Governor is finally willing to repair some of the damage, we remain deeply concerned about the long-term effects of her unilateral decisions. This past year not only worsened the hardships many New Mexico families were already facing, but it also exposed the chronic failures of bad governance. In addition to getting our children back in school, supporting our small businesses, and providing relief to those who need it most, we must also rein in the power of the Executive and restore balance in Santa Fe.”

Republican Leader, Senator Greg Baca (District 29-Bernalillo and Valencia) Republican Whip, Senator Craig Brandt (District 40-Sandoval) Republican Caucus Chair, Senator Mark Moores (District 21-Bernalillo)
