Although the legislation itself did not get very far in New Mexico’s “progressive” dominated Legislature, the discussion over how to limit spending and taxation in the State is just getting started.
Patrick Gleason of Americans for Tax Reform cited our efforts in a recent Forbes column in which he detailed the battle to restrain taxes and spending in state legislatures all over the country. New Mexico is by no means alone in its overspending. Wyoming and Pennsylvania are among the other states in which such limitations are being considered. And, while the political will for tax and spending cuts is limited, it is a good idea that we will keep pushing.
