At the May 23 meeting of the New Mexico Game and Fish Commission, New Mexico Department of Game and Fish Director Jim Lane asked for feedback on his opposition to legislation that would place the Valles Caldera National Preserve under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service when the enacting legislation expires.
Senate Bill 285 was introduced by senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich. Lane told the commission that Sen. Udall’s office had contacted him on Tuesday and asked him to issue a statement about the position of the department, the commission and Gov. Susana Martinez.
Although Lane had two days to place the item on the agenda and comply with the state’s Open Meeting Act, which requires a minimum of 24-hours notice for agenda items, he chose instead to introduce the item without notice during the meeting.
When the commission decided to move beyond discussion and vote on a resolution, they were notified that it is illegal to take action on items not on the agenda.
