SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Lawmakers have an opportunity for a long weekend before the pace of work quickens in the 30-day legislative session.

The House and Senate aren’t holding floor sessions until Monday, although some committees will meet.

The House Appropriations and Finance Committee plans to continue budget hearings on Friday, and the House Education Committee is scheduled to meet Saturday to listen to testimony from teachers and other educational workers.

The Legislature convened on Tuesday, and the first week traditionally is devoted to starting the introduction of bills and organizing committees.

Lawmakers approved and sent to the governor one measure this week - a proposal providing about $5.3 million to cover expenses of the session.
