NMBC's Current and Urgent Initiatives:

Although we don’t have any current Calls to Action, NMBC’s grassroots advocacy project: Better Together New Mexico, may have one that interests you – click here to take a look.

NMBC's Previous Initiatives:

INACTIVE: Say NO to State Controlled Utilities in NM.

Can you imagine the state or a municipality, like the city of Albuquerque, having control over your electricity? Consider the power the governor has enjoyed over the past two years of opening and closing businesses, telling us when and where we can shop, and whether our kids could go to school. She discussed turning off the power to companies that were not abiding by her ‘emergency health orders’. Think what would happen if she had the authority to turn off your heat, air conditioning, or appliances.

INACTIVE: Voters Should Have the Right to Recall Elected Officials.

HJR 12 is a proposed Constitutional Amendment which would allow the recall of elected officials in New Mexico. Many people have asked how we can stop the Governor's overreach of power, and this is one answer!

INACTIVE: Stop the Radical 'Green' Agenda.

HJR 2 and SJR 2 are resolutions that ask voters in the next election to say 'yes' or 'no' to a constitutional amendment. These resolutions propose to amend the New Mexico Constitution to provide "environmental rights." This amendment allows individuals to sue government agencies when they feel their environmental rights have been compromised.

INACTIVE: Protect Your 2nd Amendment Rights New Mexico.

HB 156 is a proposed ban on firearm magazines that hold more than 15 rounds. If you own a magazine that holds more than 15 rounds, you would have to destroy your magazine or you would become a felon if the bill becomes law.

Much Older CTA Initiatives:

Call to Action – Stop the ABQ GRT increase

Albuquerque City Residents: The Albuquerque City Council will vote tonight regarding a three-eighths of one percent (.375%) Gross Receipts Tax increase. We are asking you to show up tonight to speak against this tax increase or, in the alternative, write to the City Councilors and voice your objection.

The facts are simple. This tax increase is: 1) Detrimental to business growth and job creation; and 2) It is especially difficult for low-income and senior citizens on a fixed income. If Albuquerque wants to grow and get out of this financial crisis it is now in, the answer is to broaden the tax base by encouraging business growth and relocation, not driving it away and trying to take more from those who live and work here.
