The Line Opinion Panel reacts to Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s decision to end the statewide indoor mask mandate. State Health Secretary Dr. David Scrase cites a significant drop in cases, hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19. Panelists try to understand the rationale and discuss the burden school districts must now carry.

Correspondent Megan Kamerick speaks with the Archbishop of Santa Fe about his recent pastoral letter, calling for international nuclear disarmament. Archbishop John C. Wester explains his stance, while noting the presence of two federal nuclear weapons laboratories here in New Mexico.

New Mexico’s largest electrical utility is going to keep part of a coal-fired power plant in San Juan open a bit longer than planned. The company says it’s necessary to avoid rolling blackouts during the hottest summer months. The Line Opinion Panel unpacks what this seemingly minor setback could mean for the state’s long-term transition to renewable energy sources.
