Gov. Martinez suspends pending agency regulations.
SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Gov. Susana Martinez is halting pending regulations by executive branch agencies under her control to determine whether they hurt businesses in New Mexico.

Martinez also directed agencies to review rules and regulations that are in place and determine by the end of the month which ones should be scrapped to improve economic development and job growth.

Shortly after taking office on Saturday, Martinez issued an executive order to suspend pending and proposed regulations for 90 days while they are reviewed by a task force.

The Republican governor campaigned on cutting governmental red-tape to improve the business climate. She opposes a recently approved plan by former Gov. Bill Richardson's administration for a cap-and-trade program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
