In session’s final week, Luján focuses on the present
In what may be his final days presiding over the N.M. House during a legislative session, Speaker Ben Luján, who isn’t seeking re-election because of a long battle with cancer, is “focusing on the present,” the Albuquerque Journal is reporting.

“In comments made Friday on the floor of the House, the speaker attributed his ability to keep working to divine intervention of sorts.
“‘The good Lord, I feel, has been in my presence and allowed me to be here even though I have my illness,’ Lujan said. ‘It seems like being here with you all is a therapy that I enjoy.’”
