There is a new Santa Fe film office. It’s a joint venture by the city and county to grow and support film, television and digital media in the region. Local film industry veteran Eric Witt – he was deputy chief of staff under Bill Richardson and oversaw the development of the film industry in the state -- has been tapped to launch the new office, which open its doors tomorrow. I caught up with Witt this morning to hear about Santa Fe’s newest economic engine.

In a Public Regulation Commission hearing that began in April and resumed this week, New Mexico’s largest electrical utility is asking for a rate increase to offset the cost of acquiring power from a nuclear plant in Arizona. According to the Santa Fe New Mexican, the rate increase could be as high as 15.8 percent—that could mean between five and thirteen extra dollars per month on PNM customers’ bills.

But New Energy Economy, one of the key interveners in the hearing, says a lack of financial analysis means this rate hike is way too big for no good reason. KSFR’s Kate Powell checked in with New Energy Economy executive director Mariel Nanasi and brings us this report.

A federal court in Seattle Monday granted class-action status to a lawsuit challenging the practice of placing immigrant children in deportation proceedings without access to legal representation. The class action designation covers all undocumented immigrant children in the ninth federal court circuit.

That’s the largest circuit in the country, covering Alaska, Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, and Washington, as well as two island territories. It’s also the circuit with the highest concentration of immigration court cases. Matt Adams, legal director of Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, is co-counsel on the federal court case J.E.F.M. v. Lynch, currently before federal district court in Seattle, Washington. He gave us a bit of history on this case, and how its effects could be felt in New Mexico and throughout the US.
