Manage episode 334500357 series 2616267
Host Lou DiVizio runs down some of the biggest headlines impacting people in New Mexico this week. Then, Gene Grant hosts a discussion about how the recent reversal of Roe V. Wade could impact the race for Governor here in New Mexico. One of the key questions is whether or not the issue will drive turnout for democratic voters.
This week, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission recommended approval of Holtec International's license to store up to 10,000 drums of nuclear waste here in our state. In a conversation from April, Our Land Executive Producer Laura Paskus talks with State Senator Jeff Steinborn about the proposal and the potential issues it could cause.
Finally, correspondent Antonia Gonzales gives us a peak inside the newly-redesigned exhibit, Here, Now & Always, open now at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture in Santa Fe.
