State Rep. Don Tripp of Socorro and state Sen. Howie Morales of Silver City will be at New Mexico Tech to visit the facilities and meet with administrators on Thursday, Dec. 13. This has become a sort of annual tradition as a preparation for the upcoming legislative session. This visit is an opportunity for our legislators to listen to their constituents about various issues. President Dr. Daniel H. López will greet the legislators and escort them to the new engineering lab in Cramer 114. They will also visit the Bureau of Geology before hosting an open forum at about 2:30 p.m. in the Fidel Center ballroom A. All are invited to the open forum and welcome to bring forward any ideas or concerns, particularly those that may relate to the upcoming 2013 legislative session.
