SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – A panel is set to consider the salaries of New Mexico judges.
The State Judicial Compensation Commission is meeting to recommend a pay plan.
A study from a national center for state courts indicates New Mexico’s District Court judges earn about $118,000 a year. That’s the lowest in the nation.
New Mexico’s Supreme Court justices make the second lowest.
Their salaries have been unchanged since 2014, when a 5 percent increase was put into effect.
