On this week’s episode Paul and Wally discuss legislation (HB 85) being put forth by Rep. Damon Ely to both stop local governments from adopting Right to Work ordinances and to allow forced union membership. Wally and Paul discuss issues with the bill and how it would undermine the efforts of RGF and others alongside with local governments to increase worker freedom. As Paul notes McKinley and Sierra Counties have adopted Right to Work ordinances.
Paul and Wally then discuss the latest Albuquerque Public Schools enrollment declines and budget information along with a new lawsuit against the proposed tax hike.
Paul and Wally address new legislation that would impose income limits on the lottery scholarship program. Paul outlines reforms the RGF sees as preferable.
Finally, Wally and Paul recap the Foundation’s event with Ken Starr.

I believe the Red Counties in this State should push back hard against the repeal of RTW. If a State does not enforce Federal Immigration laws, why should it expect others to respect what they want? For instance, why can’t Sheriffs Departments pick up illegals and turn them over to ICE and a County or municipality fine businesses for hiring illegals? Just throwing out ideas.
