NM Legislative Special Session Convened at Noon Today

Group logos - policy work

As the Legislature convened today at noon for a Special Session, there are two main considerations: tax reform and the state budget.

Both are critical and interdependent. As reported this morning by the Santa Fe Reporter, tax reform is unlikely to be addressed in this session. The proposal drafted by Representative Jason Harper (R-Rio Rancho) is very complex and will not be available for review until Thursday which has some legislators uncomfortable with the turnaround time.
We anticipate the tax reform issue to be studied in depth over the coming months and to be addressed in the thirty day Legislative Session in January. Please know that we are working closely with our community partners at the Santa Fe Community Foundation, Albuquerque Community Foundation, New Mexico Association of Grantmakers, United Way of Central New Mexico, New Mexico Community Foundation and Think New Mexico to stay informed and connected to the issue. We will keep you updated.
