It’s called the “Truth in Political Advertising Act,” introduced in the State Senate by Howie Morales, one of the Democrats’ unsuccessful 2014 candidates for Governor.

Only about 40-percent of New Mexico’s registered voters participated in last November’s election. Morales says the proposal would require the Attorney General’s Office to select three nonpartisan public or private entities to serve as the review agencies to score the advertisements for truthfulness.
