The New Mexico Public Regulation Commission is a state executive position in the New Mexico state government.

Current officeholder

The current Chairman is Patrick Lyons. Lyons, a Republican, was first elected in 2010. He previously served as New Mexico Commissioner of Public Lands from 2003-2010.

Compensation

In 2010, the New Mexico Public Regulation Commissioners were paid an estimated $90,000 according to the Council of State Governments.[1]

Controversies

An investigation in August 2011 found a series of questionable charges made to Commissioner Jerome Block's state-issued gas card, totaling over $8,000 during the first six months of the year.[2] On the heels of that revelation came charges alleging Block drove a car off of a sales lot to take it to a mechanic and never returned it. He was also found to be driving on a suspended license.[3]

On August 12 the commission removed Block from his position as vice-chair. They, along with many other state officials, have called on Block to resign. If he does not, State Speaker of the House Ben Lujan, Sr. said he would form a committee to discuss Block's possible impeachment. Block and his father also have pending criminal charges against them for alleged misuse of public campaign money in 2008.[4]
