New NM Law May Not Apply To Inaugural Funds

SANTA FE, N.M. – But it's uncertain whether a new state law limiting campaign contributions will apply to the money that's raised for that.

Martinez spokesman Danny Diaz says the incoming governor has not made a decision on how to structure her inaugural fundraising organization.

Diaz says, however, she intends to voluntarily disclose contributions that are accepted.

The day after the general election, a new law went into effect that caps contributions to candidates and political committees.
