Secretary of State Adopts New Campaign Finance Rules for New Mexico
On September 8, 2017, Sec. of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver adopted campaign finance rules after three months of public hearings and reviews.
Oliver introduced the rules to clarify New Mexico’s Campaign Reporting Act (CRA) and bring the CRA into constitutional compliance.
Under the new rules, independent expenditure groups will be required to disclose their significant donors if they expend on any single political advertisement more than $2,500 for a statewide race or more than $1,000 on any non-statewide race.
The rules will be effective October 10, 2017, and are available at the secretary of state’s website.
