ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Just under a quarter of the bills introduced during the New Mexico Legislature's 2013 annual session were passed by both chambers.

The Albuquerque Journal reports that of 1,317 bills introduced in 2013, 298 were approved by lawmakers.

That compares with 284 in 2011. Gov. Susana Martinez vetoed 98 - about a third - of those.
