2011 Petition for Legal & Constitional Governance
2011 Petition For legal and Constitutional Governance
WE THE PEOPLE, of the state of New Mexico, hereby call upon the Office of Attorney General and the Justices of the New Mexico State Supreme Court to exercise the authority bestowed upon them by the Constitution of New Mexico to uphold its laws and precepts for the protection of its citizens by insuring Just, Moral, Legal, and Constitutional Governance and Taxation.
Whereas; Article 4 Section 16 of the Constitution of New Mexico states that non-appropriation bills shall be limited to a single subject. The process of passing of Senate Bill 10 during the 2010
Special Legislative Session, and the subsequent signing of it into law by Governor Richardson, violates established legislative rules of process, the Constitution of New Mexico and the interests and trust of the people of New Mexico.
Therefore, we the undersigned, pray for redress of grievances on behalf of the citizens of New Mexico, and demand an immediate, formal Attorney's General Opinion of these violations as formally requested by the Honorable Janice E. Arnold-Jones, State Representative, District 24, on the 21st day of April, 2010*. We also request the New Mexico Supreme Court, as the highest
legal authority of the state that oversees rules of the Bar and ethical behavior of those licensed to practice law in the state, insure and supervise the ethical and professional conduct of its
members to include but not limited to the governor of New Mexico and the state Attorney General. See attached Request/or Opinion dated April 21,2010.
This petition is citizen initiated. If you agree that it is the Attorney General's duty to protect and preserve a government that is trusted and supported by the governed, by issuing opinions, in a timely manner, that provide guidance in the understanding and application of the Constitution and legislative rules of process, please join with us in signing this petition. Our goal is to collect more than 20,000 signatures in less than 60 days. Let the Attorney General know that his priorities should, first and foremost, address foundational issues of Constitutionality and due process.
Anyone that would like a copy of the and the petition & letters sent by the Honorable Janice E. Arnold-Jones please email me at ChuckGOPNM@comcast.net
