The Bernalillo County Prosecutor’s Office has announced that the 1997 rape case will be suspended

BELEN, NM (KRQE) – The governor signed the COVID Spending Bill, approved by lawmakers at the special session on Tuesday. The $ 480 million bill provides more than $ 120 million to improve broadband, money to improve roads, a scholarship program for those who want to become teachers, and millions for the homeless and affordable housing.

The signing took place outside Belen Hospital, which closed in 1990 because the bill also includes $ 50 million to build a hospital in a rural New Mexico community. While that $ 50 million could go to any New Mexico county with fewer than 100,000 people requesting the funds, Valencia county officials who have worked for decades to build a county say they are confident the front runners to be.
