Congressman Steve Pearce came back to his district (CD2) for a town hall event this past Saturday and ProgressNow NM was there and broadcasting LIVE on Facebook because he held it in Ruidoso, a village of 8,000 people two hours away from Las Cruces, the largest city in his district.
Earlier this week we asked you to reach out to Sen. Mary Kay Papen and ask her to pull her bill SB 182 which would have laid the groundwork for public lands in New Mexico to be sold off. You listened and you responded. Over 370 people sent emails and countless more signed, shared, and posted our call to action.
And today, Senator Papen gave a brief statement to the Senate Education committee (where she referenced all the input she’d received) and asked that the bill be tabled. SB 182 has now died in committee!
