New Mexico Senator Sponsors Post-Session Lobbying Bill
In an effort to increase transparency, Sen. Jeff Steinborn is sponsoring a bill that would require post-session lobbying reports.
Under Senate Bill 53, lobbyists or their employers would have to file an expenditure report within 14 days after each legislative session listing the legislation they supported or opposed.
The 2020 session of the 54th Legislature is scheduled to begin on January 21 and adjourn on February 20.
If Steinborn’s bill passes, it will become effective on May 20.
