HB 2 General Appropriations Act of 2018

HB 2 General Appropriations Act of 2018

This bill will be voted on soon by the full House and then move over to the Senate. Let’s hope it properly funds our courts (we need more judges and staff) and our public safety needs. What is more important when there is about $330 million in new revenue?

As we said before, we hope there isn’t just a free-for-all spending spree with this money. Besides funding the general operation of the state and our schools, we need to focus on public safety, because parts of New Mexico are being compared to Chicago and if we don’t fix the problem immediately, we could have an ongoing out-of-control crime issue in our state.
