SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico Legislature’s website is back up and webcasting has been restored after a problem with internet service resulted in an hours-long outage.

Legislative officials said Friday’s problems were related to off-site equipment that serves the state capitol. State technicians worked with a private service provider to restore the connection.

The problems also affected state email accounts and public Wi-Fi service.

With just a week remaining in the 60-day session, the legislative schedule is packed. Viewers missed out Friday morning on committee meetings in which stricter ethics guidelines and a bill to change penalties for marijuana possession were debated.

In the Senate, more confirmation hearings were scheduled and lawmakers are still working out details of the state budget.

The Legislature adjourns March 18.
