The Office of the Attorney General (OAG) works cooperatively with the legislature and other stakeholders to support the overall success of the legislative process, during both session and interim periods.

The Legislative Affairs Division serves as the clearinghouse for all information related to legislative efforts put forward by the OAG. Attorneys from each division of the Agency write legal bill analyses—at the request of the Legislative Finance Committee (LFC) or individual legislators—of pending pieces of legislation. Additionally, OAG attorneys and staff appear as expert witnesses for bill sponsors, as appropriate, and work with sponsors, their staff, and Legislative Council Service (LCS) in order to contribute positively to the review and amendment of certain bills.

2015 Session Highlights

The OAG lobbied for and received $1.8 million—appropriated from its Consumer Protection Fund—to expeditiously complete ongoing behavioral health investigations, stemming from allegations referred to the OAG after the June, 2013 suspension of fifteen New Mexico behavioral health providers.
