  • Succession law may still be useful for N.M.

    Gov. Susana Martinez is fond of crossing into El Paso frequently for a few hours to visit family, and this has brought some public attention to the “traveling governor” provision of New Mexico’s Constitution.
    A sentence in Article 5, Section 7, says:  “In case the governor is absent from the state, or is for any reason unable to perform his duties, the lieutenant governor shall act as governor, with all the powers, duties and emoluments of that office until such disability be removed.”  
    Emoluments, even!
    Maybe, some folks are saying, this horse-and-buggy provision is obsolete in the era of instant communication.
