New Mexico’s governor, Bill Richardson, has put the issue of open conference meetings on his agenda for the Legislature – and he told members of the state’s press association they need to join in the fight for lawmaking transparency. “You’re not working hard on this,” he admonished, adding, “If you want it, this is uphill. You’re going to have to mobilize and do some editorials. … Unless you generate some support for your position with your legislator in your individual community, it’s not going to happen.” (1/26/06)
