The New Mexico Public Defender Office Amendment will appear on the November 6, 2012 ballot in the state of New Mexico as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. The measure, if enacted by voters, would remove insurance division from the Public Regulations Commission, and make it an independent entity. According to reports, the measure was proposed during 2012 state legislative session, and was sent to the ballot after legislature voted to do so before the end of session on February 2012.[1]

Path to the ballot

According to Article XIX of the New Mexico Constitution, it takes a majority vote of all members of both houses of the New Mexico State Legislature to refer a proposed amendment to the ballot.
