Council voted to decriminalize abortion on Tuesday. In a seven to one vote, the city council voted to restrict the use of city resources in investigating abortion cases in El Paso. A similar measure had failed last July when Oscar Leeser broke the tie vote against adopting the measure.

In political news, Aaron Montes, reporting for KTEP, reported that controversial Village of Vinton municipal judge, Roger Rodriguez is no longer employed by the village. According to Montes’ report, the village’s city council did not reappoint Rodriguez. Rodriguez became controversial in the Yvonne Rosales controversy when tape recordings of Rodriguez seemingly threatening the family of Alexander Hoffman, a murder victim of the Walmart murders, were disclosed in court.
Yvonne Rosales resigned in December as El Paso’s first woman district attorney in a cloud of controversy.
