Senate Republican Whip, Senator Craig Brandt Requests Message from Governor for “Glory’s Law”
Legislation would prohibit discrimination against a transplant recipient based on physical or mental disability
SANTA FE – Senate Republican Whip, Senator Craig Brandt (District 40-Sandoval), has requested a special message from Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham for Senate Bill 158, known as “Glory’s Law,” so the bill can be considered during the 2022 Legislative Session. “Glory’s Law” would prohibit discrimination against transplant recipients solely based on their physical or mental disability.
Senator Brandt issued the following statement today regarding his request for a message from the Governor:
“Every life deserves equal treatment under law. This is not a complicated bill or a difficult concept. This is basic human decency. Discrimination against the disabled has reared its ugly head in other states and now is the time to ensure it never happens in ours. We will not stand for the creation of second class citizens. Every life is worth saving and every person deserves a shot at life to the fullest.”
During a 30-day session, the legislature may only consider budget legislation and bills that receive a special message from the Governor.
