Legislative Affairs Update: March 23, 2010

Legislation passed by the New Mexico State Legislature during the 2010 Regular Legislative Session has been acted on by Gov. Bill Richardson. He signed, vetoed or pocket vetoed the legislation passed last month. Governor Richardson made his final decision about legislation on March 10.  Albuquerque Public Schools tracked some 200 bills during the Session.

Albuquerque Public Schools will now have to wait for the New Mexico Public Education Department to create rules and regulations to implement the new laws.  The Government Affairs team has completed an initial analysis of each bill.  In the coming weeks and months we will be working with staff in the district on the implementation of the laws that passed.  We will work over the next few months to guarantee that everything done in our schools meets the requirements of all the new laws and make suggestions to the Public Education Department about how implementation should be done.

If you should have any specific questions or concerns about any of the legislation please feel free to contact the Government Affairs team.

Thank you for your support, please check back for updates.
