Acequias & Land GrantsJump to Bills ↓
Acequias are community ditches or irrigation canals that are essential to northern New Mexican agricultural tradition and culture. Any proposed legislation that has the potential to positively or negatively impact acequia function or culture — usually pertaining to land use or water law – will be included in this issue category.
Land Grants were formally recognized as political subdivisions of the state in 2004. Any proposed legislation believed to positively or negatively impact efforts to preserve communal land grants and their natural resources will be included in this category.
