Civil Rights Commission bill heads to governor’s desk

Legislature

SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – A bill that creates a civil rights commission is also headed to the governor’s desk. The commission would re-evaluate qualified immunity, which protects law enforcement officers from being sued individually.

Saturday morning, lawmakers went back and forth on whether they should be the ones to decide who sits on the commission. It ultimately passed the Senate after already passing the House.
