Failed budget agreement talks with state leaders


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Face-to-face talks with Senate Majority leader Peter Wirth and House Speaker Brian Egolf with the governor have failed to produce an agreement on the budget.

Senator Wirth said the governorโ€™s repeated ideas for solving a budget shortfall for the coming fiscal year that already has been rejected by lawmakers.

A Martinez spokesman said lawmakers continue to shirk responsibility and dig in their heels over the budget.

Wirth said the governor’s budget vetoes have created a constitutional crisis.
