SJR 7 on nmlegis.gov »


SJR 7 and HJR 12 are additional attempts to gut New Mexico’s regulatory processes, by pursuing a constitutional amendment (CA) that would allow the Legislature to override regulatory rules. Our administrative agencies are required to protect public peace, health, safety and welfare – by regulating everything from nursing homes and daycare facilities to inspections of meat, restaurants and polluting industries. Efforts to curtail regulatory activities threaten the quality of life of all New Mexicans.


Defeated in the Senate.
