Census 2020 Logo

The 2020 U.S. Census is EASY. The census asks just 10 questions and takes 10 minutes to respond. When you respond to the census, you’ll tell the Census Bureau where you live as of April 1, 2020, and include everyone who lives in your household.  You’ll have three options for responding: online, by mail, or by phone. The U.S. Census Bureau has changed the deadline to self-respond to September 30, 2020. One of the best ways to ensure all communities in New Mexico are treated fairly in the distribution of public goods and services is to ensure they are equally represented. The census is mandated by the U.S. Constitution and happens once every 10 years. It serves as a count of everyone living in the U.S. and impacts all communities across New Mexico. The census determines how more than $800 billion in federal funds are distributed to communities across the U.S., including ​over $7.8 billion right here in New Mexico. Visit for more information.


Pecan weevil larva can be found in the shells of pecans.

View the full rule here.

Pecan Weevil is considered the most significant insect pest of pecan producers. Previous periodic introductions of pecan weevil into New Mexico have triggered grower specific quarantines and eradication procedures. Pecan weevil was recently confirmed in approximately 200 residential pecan trees in several eastern New Mexico pecan growing counties and several commercial pecan orchards. This recent widespread establishment of pecan weevil in eastern New Mexico’s residential areas has dictated a more comprehensive approach to maintaining New Mexico’s pecan weevil-free status. The Pecan Weevil Interior Quarantine restricts the transportation of pecan weevil from quarantine areas to non-quarantined areas by establishing quarantine areas, restrictions and treatment options on regulated articles, disposition protocol, and fees.
