Standing-room only crowd in Room 311

It’s standing-room only crowd in Room 311, where the Senate Judiciary Committee will hear HB378 — the drivers’ licenses legislation — as soon as senators get off the Senate floor. That could be soon. Sen. Majority Leader Michael Sanchez, D-Belen, just announced that senators would break to go to committees by 5 p.m.

In Room 311, legislative staff just announced to the waiting crowd that if anyone who is not with the media plans on taking photographs, webcasting or taking video, they must get prior approval from Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Richard Martinez, D-Espanola.
