New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez is signally she may add "more items" to a looming special session on the state's budget crisis.
Martinez spokesman Mike Lonergan said Friday the Republican governor may seek to have "key issues addressed" if Senate Democrats want a lengthy session. But Lonergan did not say what legislative items Martinez would include.
In recently weeks, the Republican governor has called for the return of the death penalty in New Mexico and has repeated her demand for stronger anti-drunken driving penalties.
Jim Farrell, a spokesman for Democratic Senate Majority Leader Michael Sanchez, said Senate Democrats would not respond to the governor's latest suggestion.
Democratic New Mexico lawmakers say Martinez hasn't offered a plan to fill the state's budget hole.
Martinez has promised to call a special legislative session once lawmakers have concrete proposals.
