NM Supreme Court hands governor a defeat
(2011-06-22)
(KSFR) -
The New Mexico Supreme Court has handed another defeat to Gov. Susana Martinez. A number of Democratic legislators had taken her to court, saying she misused her line-item veto authority in the case of a spending bill lawmakers had passed. The governor changed the appropriation for a housing authority to $50,000 from %150,000. The high court agreed the action was illegal.

KSFR's Marion Cox spoke with Lawyer Shane Youtz who argued the case for the lawmakers and also to Speaker of the House Ben Lujan. He was one of the legislators who joined the suit against the governor.
