Discussing the special session’s budget deal, tax overhaul failure

This week, NM Political Report editor Matthew Reichbach was on Here & There with Dave Marash, discussing the recent special legislative session. The show appears on KSFR in Santa Fe and is available online for free. Legislators met during the brief special session to address the state’s budget, making sure it would be balanced, as required by the state constitution. One piece of legislation, championed by Gov. Susana Martinez and agreed to by reluctant legislators, used severance tax bond money to help cover a budget hole. Reichbach and Marash also discussed a tax overhaul proposal that did not clear a House committee.

This week, NM Political Report editor Matthew Reichbach appeared on Here & There with Dave Marash to talk the recently-concluded legislative session. Reichbach appeared on Monday and Tuesday; on Monday the two largely discussed the state budget and how oil and gas was impacting different areas of the state budget. On Tuesday, Marash and Reichbach again touched on the budget but also spoke about other big topics, like Real ID legislation and what it means for New Mexicans. If you missed the two shows, you’re in luck: They are both available as podcasts online (and are embedded in this very post) thanks to the folks over at Here & There. Here is the March 14 edition, which was mainly focused on the budget.
