ASUNM Governmental Affairs presents proposed legislation and the view points of the student body on matters that affect students, as directed by the President of the Senate, before the New Mexico Legislature and other such bodies outside of UNM. Each year, this agency coordinates UNM Day at the State Legislature during the regular session every January. During UNM Day, ASUNM leaders and students from all over campus take the Rail Runner to Santa Fe and show Lobo pride. Most importantly, members of the Governmental Affairs agency lobby legislators on issues that affect undergraduate students. These issues range from the New Mexico Legislative Lottery Scholarship to special requests for capital outlay funding on campus.
