2024 Legislative Agenda and 2023 Interim Session

New Mexico Legislative Session 2024

The APS Government Affairs Team will represent the district at the 2024, 30-day budget session. The session begins on January 16, 2024, and ends on February 15, 2024. 

Although the district supports the right of employees to voice their political views, employees should not use the APS email system to express political opinions, nor should political emails be sent during the work day.

An APS employee who wants to attend a Legislative hearing or session, in-person or virtually, of the Legislature and has not been requested by to do so the district must take annual or personal leave. 

If you, as an APS employee, are contacted by a legislator, or other government agency or official regarding proposed legislation, interim legislative work, or school visits, contact Jessica Martinez, APS Policy Analyst and Government Liaison, at  prior to any further discussion.  She will help ensure that information is gathered and shared with the appropriate APS departments and that any district-related communications are consistent with the district's position on proposed legislation. 

If you are the representative of a public agency or a government official who would like information about APS policy, capital outlay, or information about a specific school site, please contact Jessica Martinez at
