From The Washington Examiner:

SANTA FE -- It may be Sunshine Week -- a nationwide initiative focused on the importance of access to public documents and information -- but New Mexico lawmakers are halfway toward adopting a resolution creating an exception for legislative emails.


The House on Sunday voted 48-16 to pass House Concurrent Resolution 1, which proposes limits for releasing emails and other records.

The New Mexico Foundation for Open Government opposes HCR1, saying it's "a vaguely-worded measure" that would "pull a curtain of secrecy over important decisions that affect all New Mexicans."
