The New Mexico State University Library Archives and Special Collections Department announces that its Political Papers Unit has completed processing the Commerce subseries of the Pete V. Domenici Senatorial Papers.
The 7 boxes are now open for use by researchers. The documents and materials in this part of the collection focus on legislation, reports, and policies related to economic and commercial development in both in the United States and New Mexico. “Of particular importance are the materials related to New Mexico’s economic development in the 1980s and 1990s,” said Adam Heien, Political Papers archivist. “They illustrate Domenici’s efforts to assist the development of New Mexico’s local economy, especially with small businesses.”
