Talking SNAP controversy, DA’s race and more

NM Political Report editor Matthew Reichbach once again joined KSFR radio on Friday to discuss the week’s news. This time, Kate Powell subbed in for Zelie Pollon for the end-of-the-week wrap up of the big news from the wek. Reichbach talked about stories NM Political Report wrote about this week, starting with Thursday night’s big story about employees at the state Human Services Department testifying in federal court that higher-ups instructed them to falsify benefits applications. He also spoke about what candidates for District Attorney in Albuquerque said about working with Albuquerque police after strained tensions between the DA and police in recent years. You can listen to the whole thing below on your computer or mobile device.

This week, NM Political Report editor Matthew Reichbach appeared on Here & There with Dave Marash to talk the recently-concluded legislative session. Reichbach appeared on Monday and Tuesday; on Monday the two largely discussed the state budget and how oil and gas was impacting different areas of the state budget. On Tuesday, Marash and Reichbach again touched on the budget but also spoke about other big topics, like Real ID legislation and what it means for New Mexicans. If you missed the two shows, you’re in luck: They are both available as podcasts online (and are embedded in this very post) thanks to the folks over at Here & There. Here is the March 14 edition, which was mainly focused on the budget.

The appearances, as with all Here & There with Dave Marash episodes, will be available as a podcast after the initial live airing. Reichbach will be discussing the recent legislative session.
