NM Court Orders Publication of Environmental Rules

Bruce Frederick, an attorney with the environmental law center, argued that the basic process by which administrative law is adopted and published in New Mexico was at stake.

The printing of the rules was halted earlier in the month by Governor Martinez’ Executive Order which suggested the rules were “pending” and therefore subject to a ninety day hold for review.
