Retake Webinar on Modernizing the Legislature
July 27, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm MDT
Retake Our Democracy is hosting a webinar on Modernizing Our Legislature: Paid Staff, Longer Sessions, Paid Legislators
We will be joined by Representatives Angelica Rubio (Las Cruces) and Kristina Ortez (Taos), activist Ricann Bock of Indivisible Santa Fe, and Cara Lynch, co-founder of Legislative Momentum. There is a strong movement among a group of ten Democratic women state House members to reform the New Mexico legislature with longer sessions, paid staff, and paid legislators. We are the only state that doesn’t pay our legislators! Our panelists will explain why this reform is needed and how differently the legislature could function. Please join the conversation and learn how you can help pass legislation in 2023 that will help our legislature become more efficient, more effective, and more equitable. Register here. You must register to attend.
