Think New Mexico says all the state’s former bosses are fans of this bill. Toney Anaya, Jerry Apodaca, David Cargo, Garrey Carruthers and Gary Johnson favor HB 118, which prevents lobbyists and big-time government contractors from pitching cash to political campaigns. Gov. Bill Richardson rallied for the reform in his State of the State address.

The legislation is based on a report called “Restoring Trust” published in October 2009 by the New Mexico think tank. The bill takes aim at pay-to-play practices. (We first wrote about it a few weeks ago as part of our legislative update column, Making Sausage.)

Jerry Apodaca (D), governor from 1975-1979. He was the first Hispanic governor in the United States since 1918.

Garrey Carruthers (R), governor from 1987-1991. He campaigned on re-instituting the death penalty, which caused outgoing Gov. Toney Anaya to commute the sentences of everyone on death row.
