DISSENT OF MENTAL HEALTH PROFESSION 

A State Senator submitted the following amendment to a psychologist regulatory bill during the recent session of the New Mexico legislature: "When a psychologist or psychiatrist testifies during a defendant's competency hearing, [he] shall wear a cone-shaped hat that is not less than two feet tall. The surface of the hat shall be imprinted with stars and lightning bolts. Additionally [he] shall be required to don a white beard that is not less than 18 inches in length, and shall punctuate crucial elements of his testimony by stabbing the air with a wand." Both houses of the legislature passed the bill with the amendment, but Governor Gary Johnson vetoed it.
