This week,  both houses of New Mexico's legislature approved an Enhanced Nurses Compact, which allows nurses to travel to and from New Mexico for work without having to get a new state license everywhere they go.  The bill did not pass without argument by some legislators, who say it has constitutional issues.  NMNA lobbyist Linda Siegle spoke about the details of the compact on KSFR's Wake-Up Call
