Stop reliance on the oil and gas industry boom-or-bust cycle

During this legislative session, we can choose to continue tax cuts that benefit the wealthy and well-connected, or we can choose a new path and prioritize our children and families.

It’s time to reverse course on excessive tax breaks and invest in healthy and thriving communities instead: investments in our schools to set our children on a path to success, investments in health care to keep people healthy and working, and investments in infrastructure - roads, bridges, and modern technology - that will benefit our families and businesses.

But in order to support these foundations for a thriving community, New Mexico...
