Oh, dear. Sunset review is back again – another great idea that may not work so well in New Mexico.
Sunset review is legislative code language for kicking the can down the road. If it worked, we would not today have the proliferation of boards and commissions that some folks consider irrelevant and excessive. They would have been sunsetted — that is, closed — in prior legislative sessions.
In sunset review, a provision is inserted in a statute that says an agency or board is terminated on a certain date several years in advance. In effect, the legislature is forcing itself to review those entities before the termination date and decide whether they deserve to be reauthorized.
That’s like saying, “We don’t have time this year, but we’ll make time in that other future year.” Right. Like they’re going to have less work in 2017 than they have now.
