  SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico legislators are grappling with the public health risks of convening their next session in January amid surging statewide rates of infection and deaths. A panel of leading legislators on Friday unveiled a proposal to move committee meetings to the downtown Santa Fe convention center to provide more spacious rooms for in-person committee hearings. Democratic House speaker Brian Egolf described a possible hybrid attendance model for the upcoming 60-day session that would close off public access to the Statehouse for floor debates and votes — but allow public attendance and comment at committee meetings in the convention center.
