074 News from NM Legislature, New Mexico’s slow population growth, and high dependency on gov’t health care programs

Paul and Wally discuss what they expect to happen in the last few weeks of the 2019 legislative session including a tax big tax hike (HB6), right to work preemption (HB85), the complex and massive electric industry bill (SB489), the tabling of HJR1 that would increase distributions from the Land Grant Permanent Fund for early childhood programs and more. Other topics include a recent Albuquerque Journal front page that “defines” New Mexico, plus a laughable State Land Office logo, state population growth over the past decade, and the high number of New Mexicans on Medicaid and other government health care programs and how that impacts the rest of us.
