Would it be fair to say the upcoming session of the New Mexico Legislature might be chaotic? Of course it would. As the republicans take over the House of Representatives they are cooking up a recipe for disaster as they remake the committee memberships. Anyone with a D beside their name will most likely be shuffled off to a committee where they have no knowledge of the issues. And the institutional knowledge that is so important will be lost. There is going to be some really bad legislation introduced and possibly passed. The new Attorney General Hector Balderas will need to keep a close eye on all of that legislation so he will need to quickly hire some attorneys to replace the ones he fired. Without their eyeballs on the legislature there will be bad laws passed.
