2/18/21: Senate Bill #160 passed it's first committee! PublicFinancing for NM Judges has just taken a big first step toward hopefully becoming a reality! CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF YOU who signed the petition, shared and spoke about this with loved ones, wrote to Senate Rules, or continue support the progress in general on how to bring justice and transparency to our courts. This is just the first step but it’s progress! (Up next: Senate Finance Committee!) Many thanks and CONGRATS to Common Cause who've been working for years on a more transparent government. To the judges, lawyers and legislators who believe in public financing and inclusivity, thank you! This is just one part of a far greater issue that affects people and families all over the country, but it's progress.
p.s. Our petition is now at 4,000 signatures and counting! Sign today!
2/2/21: Hi everyone! We need to move fast - our first bill toward court reform in NM is in the works! Senate Bill #160 (Public Financing for NM District Court Judges) will be heard TOMORROW - 2/3/21 by the Senate Rules Committee. We urgently need your voice if you support this important legislation! The NM legislature is not known to be particularly transparent or efficient, or accessible to all members of the public, so it's important to share this info. Thank you! I'll be there every step of the way to help push this through to the Governor's desk.
