Debates underway on two New Mexico minimum wage bills

No Comments

According to Heath Haussamen (who may still be in Santa Fe) the competing bills for an increased minimum wage are being discussed this afternoon:

Competing minimum wage bills sponsored by Senate President Pro Tem Ben Altamirano and Speaker of the House Ben Lujan will both be heard in a House committee today.

Senate Bill 324 has already passed the Senate, but infighting between Democrats over particulars of how to raise the minimum wage led to Lujan introducing House Bill 759.

Both will be heard today in the House Labor and Human Resources Committee.
