The Democrat-controlled New Mexico Legislature is suing Republican Gov. Susana Martinez over her budget vetoes, claiming she has effectively eliminated the legislative branch

The lawsuit filed Friday asks the state Supreme Court to hear the case immediately.

It’s the latest volley in a battle over how to fix the state’s financial crisis.
The Democrat-led legislature petitioned the New Mexico Supreme Court on Friday to block vetoes that “would seek to defund and thereby effectively abolish the legislative branch of government.”
