NM Lt. Gov. Travels To Oklahoma For National Conference

Lt. Gov. John Sanchez plans to attend a meeting in Oklahoma of the National Lieutenant Governors Association.

The meeting runs from Wednesday to Friday in Oklahoma City.

Sanchez's office said there will be policy discussions about health care, immigration, federal farm programs and energy issues such as the oil and natural gas industry practice of hydraulic fracturing.

The event also includes a visit to the community of Moore, which was hit by a tornado in May that killed 24 people, including 10 children.
