New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham is focusing on initiatives to address violent crime, affordable housing, climate change, and drought in a 30-day legislative session.

There is a significant surplus in general fund income, with plans to draw in a record-setting $13 billion for the coming fiscal year.

Democratic legislators are proposing a 5.9% increase in spending, while Lujan Grisham recommends a nearly 10% increase, including plans for down payment assistance and homelessness reduction.

Public safety initiatives and gun-control proposals have been outlined, with Republicans cautioning against potential infringements on gun rights.

Additionally, there are proposals to provide tax credits for electric vehicles and develop a new water source from treated water originating from oil and gas drilling byproducts.

The entire Legislature is up for election in November.
