The Santa Fe New Mexican reports Northern New Mexicans Protecting Land, Water and Rights asked state Attorney General Hector Balderas in a complaint Saturday to look into the spending practices of the Regional Coalition of LANL Communities.

That agency is made up of nine northern New Mexico cities, counties and pueblos surrounding the Department of Energy's Los Alamos National Laboratory. The group promotes the economy in connection with the lab.

A recent state auditor report found that the agency approved improper reimbursement for alcohol, food, travel and baseball tickets.

The agency's former executive director Andrea Romero, who is running for a state lawmaker seat, has drawn criticism for her spending habits.
