ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) — State lawmakers have approved a
proposal backed by Governor Martinez to expand New Mexicoâ€™s Amber Alert system.
The house approved the measure Monday to broaden the system to include children abducted by a parent or other family member.
Under the current law an Amber Alert only covers children abducted by strangers.
The bill passed the house on a 61 to two vote and now goes to the senate for consideration.
