SANTA FE, New Mexico -- Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham will call the New Mexico Legislature into a special session beginning Monday, ABC affiliate KOAT reported on Thursday.

The governor is calling lawmakers into special session to “finalize and approve new legislative district maps.”

The governor's office indicated the legislature would also discuss how to spend the outstanding American Rescue Plan Acts funds to address the “needs of New Mexicans in communities large and small.”

“My administration’s working relationship with the Legislature has been incredibly productive, for the benefit of New Mexicans, for several years now,” said Lujan Grisham. “We have achieved a lot together, and we have a lot more to do. I am sure that lawmakers will meet this moment and deliver this massively important federal funding to New Mexicans in a strategic and meaningful way."
