Want to see what bills the New Mexico Legislature passed during this month’s special session and what Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham has signed, vetoed or not yet acted on?
Visit www.nmlegis.gov/Legislation/Legislation_List. That page of the New Mexico Legislature’s website will show you everything about all the House and Senate bills, memorials and resolutions introduced during the special session.
For example, here is the entry for New Mexico Senate Bill 8:
 SJC-SJC  DP/a  fl/aa  PASSED/S (31-11)-
HJC-HJC- DP - PASSED/H (44-26) 2020 1st Special
Left to right, it shows you:
The bill wasn’t amended in the House, so you won’t see this abbreviation: s/cncrd for SB 8, which means the Senate concurred with House changes to a bill. Both chambers must agree on a bill’s final version before it can be sent to the governor for final action.
The governor had not yet acted on SB 8 when we checked the website this morning. SGND means she signed it and VETO means she vetoed it.
You will find all the abbreviations by clicking on “Key to Abbreviations” in the upper left, just below the “Legislation Listing” headline.
The information is updated on a regular basis, so when the governor acts on the bills that were passed by both chambers and sent to her, that will be added to the list.
There were 16 bills and four memorials introduced in the House during the special session, and 21 bills, two memorials and one resolution introduced in the Senate.
The website also provides information about legislators, including committee assignments and contact information. And, you can look up bills introduced as far back as 1996.
