  1. Thanks for the write-up here, Geno. I’m glad to have been able to help in New Mexico, but I’m concerned now about Colorado, where a similar bill has just passed the House. The next few months are going to be rough for our industry, I think.

  2. Daniel, allow me to publicly commend you on fighting it for all affiliates in New Mexico (and beyond). While Russians say that “one in the field is not a warrior”, I have witnessed enough situations in life where this has not been true, and your example is certainly one of them. Thank you for what you have done, Daniel! I do believe that the outcome that you have in NM at this point is definitely partially due to your work. I too am extremely sad that there weren’t more affiliates in that room…
