HOUSE JOINT MEMORIAL 3

42nd legislature--STATE OF NEW MEXICO--first special session, 1996

INTRODUCED BY RAYMOND G. SANCHEZ

A JOINT MEMORIAL REQUESTING THE GOVERNOR AND THE SECRETARY OF STATE TO ISSUE AND PROCLAIM THAT THE QUESTION OF THE STATE OF NEW MEXICO BE "RED OR GREEN?"

WHEREAS, the forty-second legislature by near unanimous action adopted House Bill 716, which proposed an official state question of "Red or Green?"; and

WHEREAS, it is of significant financial gain and national and international recognition to the state of New Mexico to make the official question asked in our state "Red or Green?"; and

WHEREAS, New Mexico is recognized as the state of "firsts" and would be the only state to adopt an official state question; and

WHEREAS, tourists are attracted to New Mexico because of its rich cultural heritage and enchantment and quickly learn the importance of the question "Red or Green?"; and

WHEREAS, all New Mexicans recognize the importance of chile to our culture and rich heritage and understand that all New Mexicans prefer either Red or Green; and

WHEREAS, New Mexico is the only state in the union in which the question is asked, and New Mexico, therefore, would move to the forefront in being recognized as the only state that takes its choice of Red or Green chile seriously;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF NEW MEXICO that the governor and the secretary of state be requested to issue and proclaim that the official question of the state of New Mexico be "Red or Green?"

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that copies of this memorial be sent to the governor and secretary of state.
