New Mexicans who've been frustrated with the state Department of Workforce Solutions will have a chance to speak up Friday.

State lawmakers are having a hearing to listen to complaints about the new computer system.

Thousands of people say they've had trouble getting their benefits since the new system launched in January.

The Labor Department's Cabinet Secretary will be there.

The Senate Public Affairs Committee will meet on Friday about 30 minutes after the Senate floor session ends and the Chamber is cleared. The Senate floor session is scheduled to start at 10:30 a.m. Friday.
