SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – A proposal that would create penalties for knowingly buying or selling endangered wildlife is moving through the Roundhouse.

It’s similar to laws in other states that restrict the trafficking of parts from elephants or any animal threatened with extinction. Democratic Senator Mimi Stewart’s bill passed the House Judiciary Committee and now heads to the full House. It already passed the Senate.
