Description

Identical to a measure last year, HJR4 attempted to gut New Mexico’s regulatory processes, by pursuing a constitutional amendment (CA) that would have allowed the Legislature to override regulatory rules. Our administrative agencies are required to protect the public – by regulating everything from nursing homes and daycare facilities to inspections of meat, restaurants and polluting industries. Efforts to curtail regulatory activities threaten the health and safety of all New Mexicans.

Outcome

Defeated in the House.
