SANTA FE, NM (AP) – The state of New Mexico reached a $ 260,000 settlement with a whistleblower alleging retaliation by state insurance regulators after it reported that a major health insurer allegedly avoided tax payments.

A Shawna Maestas attorney confirmed the financial settlement Wednesday after the terms were posted on a state clearing house website. Maestas previously oversaw the state’s financial auditing office.
