She added, “My full expectation is that the film and television industry will, at the conclusion of the investigation into this tragic incident and once all the facts are in hand, bring forward comprehensive new safety protocols to ensure this kind of incident never, ever happens again. If that sort of comprehensive new approach does not materialize, the state of New Mexico will take immediate action, throughout whatever means are available to us, to ensure the safety of all personnel on all film and television sets here in our state. This industry is important to us economically and to so many workers throughout New Mexico, and I look forward to a full accounting of how this could have possibly happened, and we will determine our next steps from there.”

Lujan Grisham also warned of possible state action in a press conference on Tuesday.In his press conference, Mendoza said that he believed that there was “complacency” on the set.“I think there are some safety issues that need to be addressed by the industry and possibly the state of New Mexico,” he said. “But I will leave that up to the industry and the state to determine what that needs to be.”
