The New Mexico Office of the Attorney General is proposing to adopt a new rule,  1.24.25 NMAC, Default Procedural Rule for Rulemaking, in accordance with Section 14-4-5.8 NMSA 1978 of the State Rules Act, that directs the Attorney General to adopt default procedural rules for public rules hearings for use by agencies that have not adopted their own procedural rules. The proposed rule is intended to comport with House Bill 58 (Laws 2017, Chapter 137), and addresses the initiation of and public participation in the rulemaking process, as well as the conduct and record of the public hearing.


The Office of the Attorney General conducted a public rule hearing on January 19, 2018, on the proposed rule. At the hearing, written public comment submitted was accepted into the hearing record and additional oral public comment was received.  ​
