Commentary: Today RPNM Chairman Steve Pearce issued the following statement after Gov. Lujan Grisham's press conference updating her public health order:

"Gov. Lujan Grisham continues her piecemeal solution to our serious problem of treating constituents fairly. We've now learned it will be at least June before dine-in restaurants, salons, gyms and other establishments can be considered for a partial reopening. The continued shutdown is killing livelihoods while other businesses are partially opened and national chains take in New Mexico dollars. This is unjust and unfair. The inequitable order is forcing hundreds of restaurants to close, bankrupting other establishments and collapsing our state's economy."
