Youth sports can practice, but not play games, overnight camping is available at most state parks in groups of no more than 10, pick-your-own pumpkin patches will be permitted to operate, ice skating rinks may operate for athletic training and practice by reservation only, and swimming pools may open with no more than 10 individuals in a pool at any one time; previously swimming pools were permitted only to provide lane swimming.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg dies. What does that mean? Paul discusses a ruling that included the Justice: Kelo v. New London. A recent ruling by a Trump-appointed judge smacks down Pennsylvania’s COVID lockdown. The conclusion of his decision is amazing.

Movie theaters remain closed; Same with bowling alleys.

New Mexico’s August unemployment rate remains in double digits.

Gun rights ordinances on the agenda at City Council;

Project Labor Agreements on the County’s agenda Tuesday night.

According to a new report, electricity prices jumped 10.1% last year (a prelude to further rate hikes?):

Beleaguered San Juan County raises taxes in order to overcome economic woes.

NM set up a $300 permanent fund for pre-K in the 2020 Legislative session. According to the Santa Fe New Mexican it isn’t growing. Rather than using that money or opening the economy MLG still wants a federal bailout.

Oil production bounced a bit in June, but it is still way down.

According to her latest pronouncements, theaters, entertainment centers, and bars in New Mexico are not likely to open until there’s a COVID vaccine.  The Gov. also begs Congress for more COVID aid in her recent testimony. There were not many specifics or details, just “send cash!”

In a bit of good news, the City of Albuquerque Council rejected an ordinance that would have “requested” the Legislature place a constitutional amendment on the ballot giving local governments the ability to enact gun control measures.

APD police chief Geier has resigned (or been fired). Paul discusses what Albuquerque residents should hope for on KOB TV Channel 4.

Wally and Paul discuss the policy proposals put forth by the pro-GOP umbrella group Respect New Mexico.

Finally, the Albuquerque Journal over the past week released polling numbers seeming to indicate strong support among New Mexicans for the Gov.’s mask mandate and the policies being implemented by both Gov. Lujan Grisham and ABQ Mayor Tim Keller. As Paul and Wally note, the only poll that matters happens in November.

Paul and Wally discuss Paul’s recent trip to Ohio, flying for the first time since COVID, and the relative openness of Ohio and New Mexico. Then Paul and Wally discuss various issues in education including the different treatment of public and private schools in New Mexico and the seemingly different treatment of conservative areas of the State.
Finally, the issue of Right to Work has been introduced into the US Senate campaign between Mark Ronchetti and Ben Ray Lujan. Wally and Paul discuss, but note that in the best polling available Right to Work is supported even by Democrats on a 2-1 basis.

Finally, Paul recently sat down for a podcast with the Cato Institute to discuss Base Realignment and Closure in Roswell, NM.

The Gov. has released her latest order COVID 19 orders: She’ll now allow churches to open at 40%. Also, indoor dining and breweries will be reopened at 25%.

In that same press conference, she attacks Española when she drove through and apparently didn’t see masks. The Mayor responds effectively. It appears there is some bipartisan momentum for reform to New Mexico’s emergency orders. 

If you want broadband stop taxing it. 

GOP Convention speakers focus heavily on school choice.  

Expiration of $600 unemployment benefit? Data questions the impact of the expiration of this program. 

Finally, Paul talks with Ryan Davis, Operations Manager of Merrion Oil & Gas and President of the Independent Petroleum Association of New Mexico (IPANM), about the newly passed methane rule that will impact oil and gas operations in New Mexico.
