SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The director of the bipartisan New Mexico Legislative Education Study Committee says she will retire at the end of the year.

Frances Ramirez-Maestas told committee members Thursday that she was stepping down as leader of the panel that studies educational issues and recommends public education funding levels.

Ramirez-Maestas says it was time to retire after years of service.

Dennis Roch, a Logan Republican, says the committee will look to hire a replacement who understands the legislative process and New Mexico’s issues.
