SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham has signed an overhaul of the state's collective bargaining laws pertaining to public employees over the objections of open-government advocates who say the changes could shield access to information about job titles, salaries and work locations for government workers.

The Democratic governor also signed legislation Thursday that eliminates a six-month waiting period for public disclosure of financial settlements to resolve accusations of abuses or misbehavior by public officials.

A spokesman for Lujan Grisham said the administration has worked to restore transparency and open access to public records.
