New Mexico's leading lady, Gov. Susana Martinez, has come out in support of a bill to impose background checks for those who buy firearms at gun shows.
U.S. Rep. Hal Rogers has led the fight against drugs in the Appalachian region and is now calling for state lawmakers to require some over-the-counter cold medicines to be sold only to people with prescriptions.
"We don't often agree with the governor on policies like these," said Pat Davis, executive director of Progress Now New Mexico, in the New Mexican report. "When progressives like us can agree with conservatives like her on gun law reform, New Mexico should sit up and take note."
"It's clear that by 2025, to meet the new fuel [efficiency] requirements, that we are going to see more electrification than we have now," Mr. Davis said. "That is going to take the form of everything from micro-hybrids to full hybridization plug-ins to electric drive. But they will not be the only thing on the road. You will probably see more natural gas vehicles than you have today, and vehicles with downsized engines and lighter vehicles than today."
