Governor-elect can stop harmful Medicaid cuts

ALBUQUERQUE — Governor-elect Michelle Lujan-Grisham should quash serious cuts to New Mexico’s Medicaid program faces in the Centennial Care 2.0 waiver approved Dec. 14 by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

The cuts, proposed by the Human Services Department under the Susana Martinez administration, would hurt families and violate federal law according to the New Mexico Center on Law and Poverty.

HSD’s Centennial Care 2.0 waiver proposal asked the federal government for permission to increase New Mexico’s Medicaid premiums and cut retroactive coverage. The cuts are scheduled to roll out in 2019 over a series of months.

Preservation made difficult by lack of action from Congress

One of the best things about living in New Mexico is the abundance of great natural beauty and opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors.

Whether it’s the view from just about any rural highway or one of the many state and national parks and forests, New Mexico boasts some of the most beautiful land in the nation. It is a heritage that all proud New Mexicans want to protect for future generations, a pride woven into our culture.

The preservation of our public lands is a sacred trust, but it’s being made more difficult by the inaction of Congress.

Much of New Mexico’s beautiful landscape has been protected and enhanced...
