New Mexico may become the first state to have an official aroma

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. New Mexico may become the first state to have an official aroma. A bill in the state Legislature would make green chiles roasting in the fall the signature scent.

Colorado was unavailable for comment. I think they all went out to dinner. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
