The Legislature Finishes Work for 2008

Or not. One never quite knows in New Mexico. Governor Bill "My Way or The Highway" Richardson thinks not and called it a do-nothing legislature. That could only be good for the taxpayer. Although State Government operates year around, the legislative branch only meets for one month or two as prescribed by the state constitution. Nobody is every sure which year it is until mid-February rolls around. If they stay in session, either it's a two-month session or everybody fell asleep listening to the Governor's speeches.

The legislature made one last grab for money by taking away all funds from the City of Albuquerque's red-light camera program. Because it was all about safety, Mayor Martin "Hugo" Chavez immediately suspended the program. It was never about the money though, right?
