Possible fireworks on the House floor?

There could be fireworks on the House floor this morning.

Rep. Andy Nunez, I-Hatch, just told me he believes Speaker Ben Lujan, D-Nambe, recognized him on the House floor last night, and he’s going to try to hold the floor this morning.

Nunez tried to blast legislation out of committee last night that would repeal a provision in state law allowing New Mexico to give driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants.

A news release sent out Wednesday night indicated that the Speaker “intends to take up the motion made by Rep. Andy Nunez to bring House Bill 78 out of committee” and onto the House floor today.

We’ll see.
