SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico Legislature approved more bills this year than it did during the last 30-day session.

However, nearly all of the legislation was passed late in the session shortly before lawmakers adjourned.

Records of the Legislative Council Service show that the House and Senate passed 91 bills - all but two of those during the final three days of the session. Also approved were three resolutions proposing constitutional amendments.

In the 30-day session in 2012, the Legislature approved 77 bills and four constitutional amendments.

This year’s proposed constitutional amendments will be placed on the November general election ballot for voters to decide. One of the proposals is to give the state more flexibility in making international investments with permanent fund assets.

The Legislature’s 30-day session ended on Thursday.
