A new task force is being created to overhaul campaign finance practices in New Mexico, state officials said Friday.
Attorney General Hector Balderas and Secretary of State Dianna Duran announced that the task force will review issues of campaign finance reporting, enforcement and the referral process. The panel will be made up of employees from both their offices.
“I am focused on putting real teeth into the law and will present these legal solutions to the New Mexico Legislature,” Balderas said in a statement.
