Although Gov. Susana Martinez hasn’t yet released the list of measures she plans to introduce during the next legislative session, one item definitely will be on the list: She will once again push to repeal the law that allows the state to issue driver’s licenses to immigrants who are living in the country illegally.
The 30-day session, which begins Jan. 21, will be focused on the state budget, but the governor can introduce items that are not related to budget issues.
