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.

Bring Democracy Dollars to the Duke City

What if ABQ could take our elections out of the hands of big special interests and put them in the hands of the people? Everyday Albuquerqueans would be heard and have a real say in the government decisions affecting our lives. And people like us might even have a chance to run for office, and win!
