Christians must be bold in our day stating clearly and emphatically that human rights come from God not the government. From Pastor Bill Redmond.
It has been a very, very dark year for pro-life bills in the New Mexico legislature……If New Mexico wants to change this, it must elect pro-life candidates. It is a hard pill for me to swallow that the majority of New Mexico residents do not value life, is this the deal? I pray that I am wrong.
This has been a long time coming……many prayers have been answered! The people of Valencia County have needed a hospital for many years! Many thanks to Senators Greg Baca and Joshua Sanchez, and Representatives Kelly Fajardo, Alonzo Baldonado, and Gail Armstrong!!! God Bless you all for your hard work for the people of God! You all have shown that ‘we the people’ still matter!!! Thank you so very much! I love this verse…it fits this news: “You will recognize them by their fruits” Matthew 7:16.
Senate and House of Representatives Give Legislative Approval for Hospital in Valencia County
SANTA FE – The New Mexico Senate and House of Representatives have passed legislation paving the way for a hospital in Valencia County. House Bill 240 – sponsored by Senators Greg Baca and Joshua Sanchez, and Representatives Kelly Fajardo, Alonzo Baldonado, and Gail Armstrong – would allow revenue generated by a 2006 local mill levy to be used for the operation of a 24-hour emergency health care facility.
“After more than a decade of uncertainty, Valencia County residents are finally one step closer to having their hospital,” said Senator Greg Baca (District 29-Bernalillo and Valencia). “We already have the funding thanks to Valencia County taxpayers. With the Governor’s signature, this legislation will ward off further litigation regarding the County’s ability to transfer the mill levy funding to support a hospital or emergency healthcare facility.”
“I thank my colleagues in the Senate and the House for their support on this important bill,” added Senator Joshua Sanchez (District 20-Cibola, Socorro, McKinley, and Valencia). “Enacting this legislation is the final hurdle in our effort to provide much needed, quality healthcare and emergency medical services in Valencia County and surrounding areas. I respectfully urge the Governor to sign this bill.”
Senate Bill 240 will now head to Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s desk for her consideration.
