Compiler's notes. — The districts set out in the 2002 Senate Redistricting Act, Sections 2-8D-6 through 2-8D-49 NMSA 1978, were held to be malapportioned and therefore unconstitutional in Egolf v. Duran, D-101-CV-2011-02942 (1st Jud. Dist. January 25, 2012). The redistricting plan embodied in Section 2-8E-1 NMSA 1978 was adopted by that court.

Effective dates. — Laws 2002, ch. 98 contained no effective date provision, but, pursuant to N.M. Const., art. IV, § 23, was effective May 15, 2002, 90 days after adjournment of the legislature.

The legislature may not reapportion its membership until after publication of the official report of the 2010 federal census. 2007 Op. Att'y Gen. No. 07-02.
