HB 185, which merges five South Mesilla Valley mutual domestics into one Authority, received a unanimous "do pass" vote in the House Agriculture and Water Resources Committee today. According to Martin Lopez, General Manager of the Mesquite MDWC & MSWA, the bill now heads to the House Health and Government Affairs Committee. The bill appears to enjoy considerable support from local and statewide entities, including the Farm Bureau, the Municipal League, and the City of Las Cruces Water Utility. It was introduced by Rep. Joseph Cervantes.
