The Las Cruces Sun-News just reported that the NM State Senate in Santa Fe "voted Tuesday to sue Texas for the return of land in a move that the bill's sponsor, Sen. Shannon Robinson, D-Albuquerque, likened to a 'slap fight' between neighbors.

Robinson said there are 603,485 acres of land along the eastern border with Texas that was erroneously appropriated to Texas due to a surveyor's error. The bill directs the attorney general to sue for the return of the land, as well as compensation for mineral rights, oil and gas royalties, property taxes and grazing privileges that have been lost due to the mistake. ------------

It's all prime Permian Basin land."

This could get interesting, folks. Maybe some Texas grazers will become New Mexico grazers.
