Sine Die: Budget Cuts, Election Laws, and Moving Forward

At the beginning of our 54th Legislative Session, Common Cause New Mexico set our top priority to secure the funding needed for our newly created State Ethics Commission. We also supported legislation to modernize and improve our legislative structure, to reduce conflicts of interests by sending an amendment to the voters to allow for a professional and paid legislature and to increase our lowest-in-the-country judicial salaries and while some of these bills weren’t successful this session, we will keep them moving through the interim committee process to introduce again next year.

Major WINS for our priority bills from week 5!

The entire CCNM staff has been busy working with the media, and moving bills and amendments in committee hearings for a bill roster covering more than 40 bills we support this past week!
