Kendra's Law coming to Albuquerque

In New Mexico, Kendra’s Law was passed unanimously by the House – but the constitutionally mandated end of the session came before it could be called for a vote on the Senate floor. The law was widely supported – the science and data clearly registered with legislators more than the emotions and fear tactics of opponents.

And proponents like Mayor Chavez, Rep. Gutierrez, and Senator Domenici are clear about their intentions. Next week, Albuquerque Mayor Chavez will introduce Kendra’s Law for the city – and Rep. Gutierrez has promised to reintroduce the bill statewide the first day of the next session.

Stay tuned.
