NM House GOP Leader calls on Governor to veto bill that limits transparency and open records

Santa Fe, NM– New Mexico Governor Lujan Grisham has one week left to take final action on legislation from the 2020 Legislature. Out of the many out-of-touch bills that were passed, House Bill 364 has sparked intense interest in the last few days. HB 364 was hastily passed in its only committee assignment as a “dummy bill” and was debated by the House in somewhere around 48-hours. The bill passed on a contentious party-line vote, with many Republican members questioning the break-neck speed of passage and taking considerable offense that Republican analysts and expert witnesses were given little to no notice of the bill’s presentation.
