SM 61 was passed by the State Senate on Friday, March 20 on a 39-0 vote. Senator Craig W. Brandt, R-Sandoval, who voted against the memorial in the Senate Public Affairs Committee, is shown as voting yes in the full Senate vote. This is the companion memorial to the already-passed HM 48.

COMMITTTEE HEARINGS/FLOOR ACTION
Senate Finance Committee Substitute for Senate Bill 159 SEVERANCE TAX BOND PROJECTS
The House Ways and Means Committee heard SFC/SB 159 on Friday, and made substantial
revisions to it. They sent the amended bill (HWMC/SB 159) to the House Floor on a 7-6 vote. The full House debated the changes for much of the morning, and passed it by a vote of 36-32. Both these votes were along party lines, with Republicans in favor and Democrats opposed. As the bill passed with 20 minutes left until the fixed adjournment time, the Senate did not have the opportunity to concur in the House amendments, and the entire $260 million package died.
It is unknown at this time whether the Governor will call a special session, as capital outlay funding is one of several substantive issues which did not make it through. HWMC/SB 159 would have funded 49 library projects totaling $2,552,790. All of the library projects in SFC/SB 159 were retained, and several individual projects had increased appropriations. Several new projects were added:
ALB CHERRY HILLS LIBRARY SECURITY SYSTEM $10,000 Albuquerque
to purchase and install a digital camera security system at the Cherry Hills public
library in Albuquerque in Bernalillo county;
ALB TAYLOR RANCH LIBRARY SECURITY SYSTEM $11,600 Albuquerque
to purchase and install a digital camera security system at the Taylor Ranch public
library in Albuquerque;
ALB TAYLOR RANCH LIBRARY WINDOWS $27,000 Albuquerque
to replace windows in the Taylor Ranch public library in Albuquerque in Bernalillo
county;
VIRDEN LIBRARY IMPROVE $70,000 Virden
to plan, design, construct, equip and furnish improvements to the library building
in Virden in Hidalgo county.
The status of the $300,000 bookmobile appropriation to the Cultural Affairs Department was
uncertain. It was in the Senate version. The House Ways and Means Committee amendment left out the Senate item, but included the bookmobile in a Department-wide appropriation among other unspecified projects:
“SECTION 43. CULTURAL AFFAIRS DEPARTMENT PROJECT–
APPROPRIATION FROM THE ART IN PUBLIC PLACES FUND.–Notwithstanding
the provisions of the Art in Public Places Act to the contrary, two
million five hundred thousand dollars ($2,500,000) is appropriated
from the art in public places fund to the cultural affairs
department for expenditure in fiscal years 2015 through 2019, unless
otherwise provided for in Section 2 of this act, to plan, design,
construct, renovate, furnish, equip and upgrade infrastructure at
museums, monuments and historic sites statewide, including the
preservation of exhibits at historic sites, and to plan, design,
purchase and equip a bookmobile for use statewide.”
In previous special sessions, Governors have sometimes put bills that had passed at least one chamber in the official “call”. If that were to be the case this year, then the House-amended SB 159 likely would go to the Senate Finance Committee for review.
