Summary

Current law requires that cabinet secretaries be confirmed by the state senate, but, once confirmed, a secretary serves at the pleasure of the governor. Constitutional Amendment No. 3 proposes to add a new section to Article 5 of the Constitution of New Mexico that would require that the heads of all cabinet-level departments or agencies whose appointment is subject to confirmation by the state senate be reconfirmed at the beginning of each term of a governor.
