It’s all about persistence
The New Mexico legislature adjourned without passing SB 268, a bill to ban coyote killing contests in New Mexico. It was SWEC’s top priority bill this year, one of six good wildlife measures we supported. But we’re not fazed. We know this bill will pass eventually. Momentum and public opinion are on our side. We will be back at the Legislature in 2019 (next “long” session), stronger than ever and ready to try again. Read our full legislative report here.
