Governor faces lawsuits

-A A +A
By Associated Press

SANTA FE — Republican Gov. Susana Martinez is facing two  lawsuits that contend she is illegally stopping newly approved pollution control measures from taking effect.
Thursday,  a coalition of groups, including Amigos Bravos and Caballo Concerned Citizens, asked the state Supreme Court to order her administration to move ahead with publishing new groundwater regulations governing discharges by dairies.
The rules were approved last month by the Water Quality Control Commission under former Democratic Gov. Bill Richardson’s administration and were to be published Friday, to take effect at the end of the month.
The Martinez administration, however, halted the publication of the dairy rules and other pending regulations after she took office.
Earlier this week, a lawsuit was filed over the administration’s handling of regulations to curb greenhouse gas emissions, and the Supreme Court on Thursday said it would hear arguments in that case on Jan. 26.
Both lawsuits contend that Martinez has exceeded her powers by blocking the publication of rules after they were adopted by regulators.
