Ethics Commission will give "political subdivisions" three years to ge their acts together.

The new Ethics Commission, link, applies to state government employees. It does not apply for example, to the Albuquerque Public Schools Board of Education, and will not, until January 1, 2013.

By January 1, 2013, the state ethics commission shall
submit a report to the legislature and the governor
regarding the extension of commission jurisdiction to
elected and appointed officials and employees of
political subdivisions of the state.
You can almost hear their collective sigh of relief.

The Board recently approved a Code of Ethics, link, which applies to them, but by their own admission is completely unenforceable.
