U.S. Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham

In fact, Lujan Grisham did not support S483, the bill in question. It was pushed through the U.S. House by Republicans under the suspension of the rules - meaning there was no opportunity to amend or vote on the bill. Lujan Grisham has cosponsored legislation (H.R. 4073) that would reverse the impact of this bill.
