How many government employees does it take to…..

How many U.S. Forrest Service employees does it take to run a chipper? While in northern New Mexico near Taos recently, NMBC came across the above scenario. Apparently, it takes nine federal workers to handle feeding pine branches into a wood chipper. NMBC spends a lot of time talking about the need to reduce dependence on government programs in New Mexico. The other half of the equation is reducing government dependence on a bottomless pit of tax dollars that encourages waste and a ‘spend it so we can get more next year’ mentality.

Cristina Arnold, NMBC Regional VP, takes on NM talk radio on Roswell’s 106.5, Mornings with Mike Winters: Working in New Mexico to improve the business environment; getting government out of the way so job providers can expand opportunities for more New Mexicans; working to break generational chains of government dependence? “Yes, yes, and yes…that’s what New Mexico Business Coalition works to do,” said NMBC VP Cristina Arnold.

New Mexico Water is a hot commodity: The Land of Enchantment is enchanted with many wonderful things but is lacking when it comes to water. That is a commodity critical to every New Mexican and creating current challenges for one of New Mexico’s most important industries: oil and gas. A recent decision by State Land Commissioner Aubrey Dunn has created quite a controversy over the use of fresh water from the Ogallala aquifer. Read more HERE.
