This set updates New Mexico Statutes Annotated, 1978 Compilation (NMSA 1978), through the legislation enacted at the Second Regular Session of the 56th Legislature (2024). All permanent, general laws have been compiled. Other laws, such as applicability and severability clauses, have been noted in the annotations in the NMSA 1978 and published in the official Session Laws. Appropriations and bond authorizations, which are not compiled in the NMSA 1978, are also published in the official Session Laws.

The effect of amendments to the NMSA 1978 are given in brief form in a note following the amended section. The effective date of amendments and new laws compiled in the NMSA 1978 appears in a note following each section.

Laws enacted without a specific effective date, or without an emergency clause, take effect pursuant to N.M. Const., Article IV, § 23 ninety (90) days after adjournment of the legislature. The effective date of the 2024 laws that took effect pursuant to Article IV, § 23 is May 15, 2024. Legislation that was compiled, but had not taken effect at the time that the 2024 laws were printed, appears in italics to call attention to its postponed effectiveness. The effective date of these sections with postponed effective dates may be found in parentheses in the section headings. Sections that have been repealed by the legislature with an effective date after October, 2024 are published with the repeal dates in the heading at the beginning of the sections.
