Health Security 2019: Ready to Roll!

Ready to Roll!

New Mexico's Speaker of the House, Rep. Brian Egolf, recently had this to say about the upcoming legislative session:

"I think Health Security Act is top of the list. I think that will certainly be able to pass the House. We're going to have a governor supporting that as well, which will be exciting."

– Rep. Egolf on Retake Our Democracy radio program, 11-17-18

We're certainly excited!
