SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham has halted publication of a running daily list of appointments that previously offered insights into her travels and interactions with legislators, business leaders and advocacy groups.
    
As of Monday morning, the most recent calendar item for Lujan Grisham was more than seven weeks old.
    
Weekly online updates about the governor’s conversations and appointments were introduced earlier this year as an extra step toward transparency. It marked a change from the administration of Republican predecessor Susana Martinez.
    
Hundreds of listings for the first nine months of Lujan Grisham’s administration include conversations with lobbyists, labor leaders, energy executives, environmental activists and more.
    
The governor’s office previously said the calendars included about 95% of professional engagements and that unlisted engagements primarily involved staff.
