He called a plan to make contraception more available to women “a silly stunt” Gentry Called A Substitute Bill Making “Contraception More Available” And Adding “$5 Million To Early Childhood Education” A “Silly Stunt,” & A “Gotcha Substitute” Designed To “Make This Side Take A Bad Vote.” The Deming Headlight wrote, “Early in the debate on the first bill, House Minority Leader Brian Egolf, D-Santa Fe, introduced a substitute bill that would have made contraception more available statewide and would have added $5 million to early childhood education. This, he argued, would reduce the number of abortions in the long run. But Majority Leader Nate Gentry, R-Albuquerque, said the substitute was unconstitutional because it would change the original purpose of Herrell’s bill. He called the move “intellectually dishonest,” a “silly stunt” and a “gotcha substitute” designed to “make this side take a bad vote.”” [Deming Headlight, 03/08/15]
He joined a corporate policy group pushing to let insurance companies deny mammograms to women Gentry, A Member Of ALEC, Said, “There’s Nothing Wrong With Legislators Exposing Themselves To Different Ideas.” According to the State Net Capitol Journal, “ALEC didn’t have much to lose in New Mexico, where Democrats have held sway in the Legislature for decades. New Mexico Rep. Paul Bandy (R), a state co-chairman of ALEC, said the only model legislation that has passed there is a 2010 measure establishing the Sunshine Portal, a website listing state budget and other public information that was overwhelmingly supported by both parties. But New Mexico Rep. Nate Gentry (R), another ALEC member, said he wished more Democrats would become involved with the group. ‘There’s nothing wrong with legislators exposing themselves to different ideas,’ he said.” [State Net Capitol Journal, 7/23/12]
