The recommendation from the Senate Public Affairs Committee on Friday Feb 15 was to continue the hearing on the bill on Tuesday afternoon at 1:30 pm.
The committee will not accept any more testimony in support or opposition to the bill.
Senator Brandt recommended that the bill language be amended to retain the apprentice (ASL) language that currently exists in Statute and make SLPA requirements a separate section. The current bill will be amended to include that recommendation. Both the bill sponsor and NMSHA support the amendment.
