Start the year with a BASH!

The 2017 New Mexico legislative session will be starting soon and based on the bills that have been pre-filed, elected officials are full of ideas on how to change our lives through legislation. Do YOU want to see more regulation, increased taxes and more money taken from our permanent funds for an education system that needs a complete overhaul before it needs more money? From what we've heard, the answer is a resounding 'No!'

NMBC recently conducted a survey, asking for your input on topics such as minimum wage increases, the state budget, addressing crime, tax reform and more. We got some amazing responses and thoughtful feedback that we'll be sharing at the BASH (Business and Social Hour) on January 12.

Taxpayers: Don’t get left out in the cold

In politics everyone works for someone.

Politicians work for bureaucrats, bureaucrats work for corporations, corporations work for shareholders, all the while the person who should be the boss, the taxpayer, is left out in the cold.

At the New Mexico Business Coalition (NMBC) we know citizens are supposed to be the real leaders in our system of self-governance. That’s why we work each day, fighting on their behalf, while keeping them informed and engaged with what’s happening politically.

No one else in New Mexico does what NMBC does.

NMBC Fights Washington D.C. Job Killing Regs, and We Won!

NMBC was Proud to Take a Stand with the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) recently in a court case against a Department of Labor overtime rule that would have taken effect on December 1. Along with a coalition of other associations and 21 states, NMBC supported the NAM Manufacturers’ Center for Legal Action (MCLA) in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. The great news for New Mexicans who are already struggling with some of the highest unemployment rates in the nation is that we succeeded in delaying, if not stopping implementation of the job killing rule!

Obama’s Labor Legacy: Lost Jobs in New Mexico

A Labor Legacy to Remember: Years of Excessive Overregulation

New NAM/NMBC Study Outlines Cost of Labor Regulations: Washington, D.C., Albuquerque, NM, September 22, 2016 – The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and New Mexico Business Coalition (NMBC) released a new study today that outlines the destructive legacy this administration’s relentless labor regulatory agenda will leave for manufacturers, their employees and the communities in which they live. Regulations on issues such as contractor blacklisting, employee overtime, silica, union elections and injury and illness reporting will not only result in hundreds of millions of hours of paperwork, but will also come at a price tag of more than $80 billion in compliance costs over the next 10 years.

Decision 2016, Bad Ordinances, Good Energy, NM Heroes & More

So Many Issues: In the midst of important issues our elected officials (and voters) should be focused on, the Bernalillo County Commission has called a special meeting for Thursday, September 8, at 2pm. The point of the meeting is what to do with an Albuquerque Ordinance that will dictate to employers the type of paid leave they provide employees. While the issue is in Albuquerque for now, it has implications for every city in the state. NMBC will be at the meeting with several business owners to speak against the ordinance being placed on the November 8 ballot.
