New Mexico News

Online piracy is a serious issue that hurts our economy and costs us jobs in New Mexico. Counterfeit medication and contaminated drugs that are sold online endanger the health of Americans. It is clear that steps need to be taken to combat online piracy, but after further review, I have decided that I can no longer support SOPA in its current form. Over the past few weeks, I have heard from many of my constituents who agree that piracy is an issue that must be addressed, yet have serious concerns with provisions in this bill. After listening to them and talking with folks in the district over the weekend, I took another hard look at the bill. While we need to take steps to address online piracy, we must also protect the unique qualities of the Internet.

Great article on why you should get a flu shot:
Many Americans associate influenza with the fall, but you may be surprised to learn that during many flu seasons, influenza activity doesn’t peak until winter or early spring. In fact, virus activity peaked in February or later in approximately half of the past 35 flu seasons.

I outlined more of my anti-corruption agenda today and I'm encouraged that it has bi-partisan support. Public officials who plead guilty to corruption should be immediately fired, lose their pensions, and be subject to more severe penalties. I am also once again asking the legislature to shut the revolving door that turns citizen legislators into special-interest lobbyists by prohibiting former legislators from lobbying for two years after they leave the legislature. We have made progress rooting out corruption, but we can and must do more.
She also renews call for lobbying restriction on lawmakers.
