“Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham yesterday announced she will call a special legislative session on Nov. 24 to allocate $300 million in CARES Act funding for New Mexicans and businesses in the midst of surging COVID-19 cases and a restrictive public health law. “We want to get this relief out to New Mexicans,” the governor said. “They need unemployment, they need housing assistance and businesses need grants. That gives us a day…so the Monday we get back, we’re pushing money out the door.” The governor announced the special session during her weekly COVID update, which included repeated calls for residents to forego Thanksgiving next week.
