Legislation

New Mexico Legislature
The New Mexico State Legislature convenes in regular sessions on the third Tuesday in January each year. The Legislature meets for 60 days in odd-numbered years and 30 days in even-numbered years. Between regular sessions, legislators serve on interim committees that study a variety of issues. The Legislature is composed of a 70-member House of Representatives and a 42-member Senate. The members are unpaid for their legislative work, but do receive a daily living allowance for each day of official legislative work. Legislators are elected from districts of approximately equal population. Several counties with small populations may be combined to form a single district. Additional Information can be found on New Mexico Legislature’s Home Page, www.nmlegis.gov

Legislative Calendar
NMAC’s legislative calendar is determined by the calendar of the New Mexico State Legislature. Once the Legislative Session commences, bills are assigned to Standing Committees in the House of Representatives or the Senate. A calendar for all Standing Committee meetings and House of Representatives and Senate Floor Sessions is found at www.nmlegis.gov/lcs/agecalendars.aspx .
