New Mexico 2021 legislative session: What we know so far

SANTA FE - As the Jan. 19 opening of New Mexico's 60-day legislative session approaches, chain link fencing encircles the state's unique capitol building, known as the Roundhouse, the only round state capitol building in the United States.

The Roundhouse has been closed to visitors during the COVID-19 pandemic, and now state police are coordinating with local law enforcement to safeguard the legislative session following FBI warnings that all 50 states may see crowds of armed protesters at their capitols beginning this weekend and running through the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden on Wednesday, Jan. 20.

The deadline to introduce legislation during the session is Feb. 18, and the session is scheduled to conclude at noon on March 20. Gov.
