The state now has an agency dedicated to investigating ethics violations. 

Thursday, Gov. Lujan Grisham signed Senate Bill 668 establishing the State Ethics Commission. She calls it “an ethics watchdog with teeth.” 

Its seven members will be responsible for looking into complaints against public employees, contractors, lobbyists and others. Their job will include working with the courts to determine the legitimacy of complaints and make sure the appropriate legal action is taken.
