House GOP instructs Legislative Council to publish Capital Outlay expenditures on web

Santa Fe, NM– The 2020 Legislative session wrapped up just a week ago and many bills are awaiting action by the Governor. Somewhere in the cache of legislation on the Governor’s desk are the familiar, yet not so transparent legislative capital outlay expenditures. For the second year running, the House Republican caucus has instructed the Legislative Council to publish GOP lawmaker’s funded capital outlay expenditures and dollar amounts on the Legislature’s website. Representatives Gail Armstrong (R-Magdalena), Rebecca Dow (R-T or C) and Jason Harper (R-Rio Rancho) each co-sponsored transparency legislation aimed at clarifying for the public the capital outlay process.
