Santa Fe, NM – Today, Attorney General Hector Balderas announced that the Office of the Attorney General has promulgated a new rule for rule making processes for government agencies across New Mexico. With input from the public and various public bodies from across the state, the Attorney General’s default procedural rule for rulemaking establishes baseline standards for rule making processes.

“Government agencies must be transparent and accountable to the public when making the rules that govern how we function as a State,” said Attorney General Balderas. “This rule will create consistency in the process so that New Mexicans know that their government is working for them and is accountable.”

The New Mexico Office of the Attorney General’s default procedural rule for rulemaking, codified at 1.24.25 NMAC, can be found in the New Mexico Administrative Code at
