-A A +A
By Tris DeRoma

An attorney representing a group suing the New Mexico Secretary of States office and the attorney general’s office has responded to the defendant’s motion to dismiss order.

The group, the New Mexico Patriot Advocacy Coalition, is suing the New Mexico Secretary of State and attorney general’s office.

According to the group’s attorney, A. Blair Dunn, the group alleged Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver and Attorney General Hector Balderas repeatedly ignored state constitutional law when it rejected multiple attempts by the group to petition against 10 bills the State Legislature passed in the January session.

The bills include a bill to join other states to abolish the electoral college in favor of the popular vote for president,  a bill to raise the minimum wage, a bill to create and protect certain wildlife corridors on hunting grounds in New Mexico, a bill allowing for voter registration during early voting in statewide elections, a bill requiring union membership as a prerequisite for a job, a bill promoting renewable energy, a bill requiring reporting of independent expenditures, a bill abolishing coyote killing contests and others, including two bills related to gun control.
