HJM 10 “Pass Fix It America” is on the agenda for the Senate Rules Committee on Monday, February 12th at 9:00 am 

Things are moving at a fast pace with just three full days left in the legislative session, and HJM 10 will have its only Senate committee hearing on Monday morning before it moves to the Senate floor.   

Please help New Mexico lead the way to end the vast amounts of undisclosed money that is currently spent in our elections, and to stop partisan gerrymandering that intentionally favors political parties. 

How you can help: Please call or email your legislators and ask them to support HJM 10 TODAY!

Here is the full text of what this Joint Memorial will ask Congress to do:

Section I.  Congress and the states shall have the power to regulate the role of money in elections and governance to ensure transparency, prevent corruption, and protect against the buying of access to or influence over representatives. No such reasonable regulation shall be deemed in violation of freedom of speech rights in the Constitution of the United States or its Amendments.

Section II.  Legislative districts or districting plans shall not intentionally or unduly favor or disfavor any political party.  

As always, thanks for checking in and lending your voice to help us build a better democracy!
