As legislative bills make their way through the session -- which comes to an end on February 18 - we wanted to hear about some issues receiving less coverage, including a restrictive abortion bill and one that calls for reform of bail bond procedures in the state. Matt Reichbach is editor of New Mexico Political Report. He spoke with KSFR's Zélie Pollon, and gives us an update on this week's important bills.

Women from diverse New Mexico communities and their allies gathered Thursday night at Rio Chama Steakhouse for an event entitled "Power & Possibility: Investing In New Mexican Women And Girls." The event showcased a number of organizations and activists, including keynote speaker Theresa Younger, president and CEO of the Ms. Foundation, the world's oldest women's fund. Younger joined Sarah Ghiorse, program director of NewMexicoWomen.org, in conversation with Mary-Charlotte on a recent edition of the Santa Fe Radio Cafe.

KSFR's John Calef brings you local news at noon.

Yesterday marked the halfway point of the 2016 New Mexico legislative session. And as Tom Trowbridge reports, press conferences by the Democrat-controlled Senate and Republican-controlled House painted very different pictures of the work that's been done at the Roundhouse so far.

On a recent edition of the Santa Fe Radio Café, New Mexico Health Department Cabinet Secretary Retta Ward told Mary-Charlotte that during the 20th century, the most major improvements in healthcare involved treatment and prevention for infectious diseases like Polio and HIV. But Ward says that in the 21st century, we’re fighting a different battle.

Republican House Majority Floor Leader Nate Gentry is calling a Senate amendment that stripped finger printing provisions from House-approved legislation on REAL-ID and New Mexico driver’s licenses “a deal-breaker.” Gentry and House leaders insist the Democrats are going back on their word. Gentry reading to reporters on Wednesday a pre-session letter from Democratic leaders.
