Abstract: New Mexico has a mix of ethical canons and statutes, including the Government Conduct Act, the Procurement Code, Financial Disclosure Act, and others. The Judicial branch has its own code of conduct, as does the Legislative branch. The Government Conduct Act encourages Executive branch agencies to develop and maintain agency specific codes of conduct. It is important to note the distinction between ethical canons, which could result in administrative discipline or sanctions, and criminal/civil statutory provisions, violations of which can result in criminal fines, penalties, etc. This report provides a brief summary of the existing ethics laws, mechanisms for enforcement, and responsibility for ethics education, by branch of government. Next, problem areas are addressed before presenting recommendations.
