Health Security for New Mexicans Campaign New

Security
Act
Updated 3 Mars 2007 10:45am

The New Mexico Health Security Act has been introduced in both the NM House and Senate.  It is proposed legislation to bring a single payer system to New Mexico that will cover all New Mexicans.

While this has received broad based grassroots support, as with all legislative issues, it has opponents - primarily the insurance companies who have strong influence in Santa Fe.

If you want...

  • Universal Health Coverage in New Mexico
  • With Cost Controls
  • Benefits Equal to State Employees
  • With No New Taxes
  • Savings in the Billions of Dollars in Coming Years

then this issue requires your immediate attention.  

Call your NM Senator and Representative to urge their support in the House and Senate floor votes.  In Grant County these would be...

  • Senator Ben Altamirano - 505.986.4733
  • Representative Manny Herrera - 505.986-4233
  • Representative Dianne Hamilton - 505.986-4221

Also call the committee members below as these hurdles must be cleared first.

The Senate version - SB 720 sponsored by Senator Carlos Cisneros - has received a DO PASS recommendation in the Judiciary Committee and is scheduled in the Finance Committee for 1 March 2007.

The companion SB 721 - also sponsored by Senator Cisneros - which provides 
feasibility study financing - is in the Public Affairs Committee but has not been scheduled as of 28 February.

The House version - HB 1222 sponsored by Rep Roberto Gonzales - has been assigned to the House Health & Government Affairs Committee and is scheduled for Thursday 1 March 2007 at 8am.
