NEW MEXICO STATE CAPITOL

Ghostly Capitol

Posted

Normally a beehive of activity on the Opening Day of the legislative session, the New Mexico State Capitol building was quiet behind fencing and streets blocked by State Police and National Guardsmen Tuesday, Jan. 19. A few legislators and staff were working inside the Roundhouse, but many were working remotely. All public traffic was prohibited due to the dual threats of COVID-19 and rumblings of political protest.
