Action at the Roundhouse: Ethics & TIDD Reform!

marjorie says...

Good news from the Roundhouse:

The TIDD Reform Bill, HB 451, was voted out of the House Judiciary Committee 7-3. Now it goes to the House Taxation and Revenue Committee, which is chaired by Ed Sandoval. Please give his office at the Capitol a call to voice your support and urge him to schedule the bill asap: (505) 986-4420.

The Public Financing Bill, HB 564, was voted out of the Voters and Elections Committee 7-5, and now goes to the Appropriations committee. The chair of that committee is Kiki Saavedra, who you can call with support at (505) 986-4316.

The Ethics Commission Bill, HB 309, is going to be heard in the Judiciary Committee tomorrow at 1:30pm.

The State Contributions Limits Bill, SB 387, is going to be heard in Rules tomorrow at 8am.

If you can, make calls to the Committee members and voice your support of these important ethics bills. We need to keep them moving, and have only two weeks left in the session!

You can find who sits on what committee as well as contact information on, a website put together by Conservation Voters New Mexico. It requires a free registration but is a great resource. Thank you CVNM!
