Issues

State Investment Council

Rep. Keller and Rep. Steven Neville sponsored a bill in the 2011 session that would kick off Gov. Susana Martinez from the State Investment Council and change the way four legislative appointments on the 10-member SIC board are selected.

The legislation passed the Senate 38-2 and was approved by the House of Representatives 50-18. In early April 2011, it sat on Gov. Martinez’ desk with an April 8 deadline for signing it, vetoing it, or pocket vetoing it

Neville and Keller learned that the Governor’s Office “had some real hesitations with this bill,” Keller said. Neville said the Governor’s staff indicated to him that the Governor herself wanted to talk personally to him and/or Keller about some questions she has with the measure.

“We’re not trying to pull anything on her,” Neville said. “We’re trying to correct the things that happened under [previous Gov. Bill] Richardson.”

“We’re still going through the process of reviewing legislation,” Martinez spokesman Scott Darnell said. ”A final decision has not yet been made on SB 17, but the Governor’s stance was very clear throughout the legislative session. As we’ve relayed: The Governor supports removing all politicians from the State Investment Council and requiring that those appointed to serve in their place meet minimum qualifications of having at least 10 years of professional investing experience.”[2]

Not running for congress

Keller announced on April 19, 2011 that he would not run for Rep. Martin Heinrich’s seat in the First Congressional District. His release stated:

"Many thanks to all of you that have been encouraging me to run for Congress. I greatly appreciate your enthusiasm! Liz and I remain passionate about local public service, but rather than congress I will be running for re-election to the NM senate next year. Thank you again for your continued support."[3]
