I am preparing to perform research on the Endangered Species Act in New Mexico. I understand that the library holds state documents for California, however, I was wondering if they hold any documents for New Mexico (regarding the ESA). I greatly appreciate your assistance.
In general, no we don't collect NM state documents. However, given that the Endangered Species Act (ESA) is a federal law administered through the Fish and Wildlife Service, you'll find quite a bit on it in books, articles, US govt documents and websites. Take a look at the following suggestions.

The part of the United States government that oversees all tariff issues and data is the United States International Trade Commission. They maintain a number of tools for finding specific tariffs on specific products for import, the most detailed being the Harmonized Trade Schedule Reference Tool. You can also download the entire current Harmonized Trade Schedule in pdf. For specific questions, you can contact them here.
Cumulative data on imports and exports and all tariffs are maintained on the USITC Interactive Tariff and Trade DataWeb. You need to register to use this database, but it's free to all. Here you can construct detailed statistical reports of all imports, exports, duties paid, amounts paid by individual countries or groups of countries, both for totals per year and for each commodity.

There is a very good historical index for such titles, called the Bulletin of the Public Affairs Information Service , which, in its online version, is called the PAIS Archive. This covers both of the titles you mention, from 1915 to 1976. It has many other municipal policy publications as well.

The PACER service provides on-line access to U.S. Appellate, District, and Bankruptcy court records and documents nationwide. It's extremely important to lawyers, researchers and students. However, in the minds of many law librarians and govt transparency activists, the system is in need of improvement.
