Contact: James Hallinan  (505) 660-2216

Santa Fe, NM – This morning, Attorney General Hector Balderas released the following statement after the Office of the Attorney General responded to Legislative Council Service’s motion to quash or modify subpoenas:

“As public servants we have an obligation to taxpayers and the citizens of New Mexico to be transparent and accountable, and the Legislative Council Service’s attempt to assert a blanket privilege on behalf of all legislators in this matter is obstructive to the administration of justice and the transparency that all New Mexicans deserve.”
