Secretary Of State’s Business Services Boosted With Bipartisan Passage Of Two Bills Now Headed To Governor’s Desk
SANTA FE – A pair of bills that will improve how business owners interact with the Secretary of State’s Office passed the New Mexico House of Representatives tonight and are now awaiting the signature of Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham.
“I’m dedicated to improving the Business Services Division of my Office in every way we can and these bills help provide more convenience and clarity when businesses interact with us,” said Secretary of State Maggie Toulouse Oliver. “I thank Senator Clemente Sanchez for working closely with my staff and guiding these bills through.”
Senate Bill 167 improves the customer service experience when businesses file documents with the Secretary of State by allowing them to file electronically through email and through the Secretary of State’s online portal.
Senate Bill 162 prevents the good standing of businesses from being adversely affected when one of their registered agents dissolves their individual status in the business.
Both bills were sponsored by Senator Clemente Sanchez. Senate Bills 162 and 167 both unanimously passed the Senate earlier in the session and SB 162 unanimously passed the House tonight, while SB 167 passed 56-1.
