SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico Foundation for Open Government has renewed its request for the full release of an audit of 15 nonprofits that provided behavioral health services for needy New Mexicans.

In a motion Thursday, the groups asked District Court Judge Sarah Singleton of Santa Fe to order the state to make the report public, saying the New Mexico Attorney General’s Office has had ample time to secure information for possible prosecution against any of the providers targeted. The Attorney General already has cleared two of the nonprofits.

The foundation filed suit last September after the attorney general and the state Human Services Department refused its request for the audit, which prompted Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration to freeze Medicaid payments to the providers while the attorney general launched the probe.
