HJR 12 Recall of Public Officers Bill
There are few states that allow for a recall of Senators or Representatives. In fact, there are only 18 states and the District of Columbia that allow this. If you're not living in one of these states, you have no constitutional rights to a recall. New Mexico just happens to not be one of these states. Should one of our Senators or Representatives consistently vote against the wishes of the population, we would have no method of persuading them to represent OUR wishes (Obamacare comes to mind).
In last year's session of the New Mexico Legislature, Larry Larranaga, the Representative from District 27, was asked to introduce a Bill that would allow a recall. Larry is an Albuquerque resident and a member of the Rules Committee in the House, as well as the Appropriations and Finance Committee. The House Speaker sent the Bill to so many Committees that it never made it to the floor for a vote.
Larry was asked again and he has agreed, to reintroduce the Bill again this year.
This recall bill is one way to get the attention of our U.S. Senators and Representatives to stop their progressive voting that flies in the face of their constituents.
Please contact your NM State Senators and Representatives and mention your support of this Bill!
