The legislation to create a New Mexico State Public Bank did not progress in this year's legislative session. It received two committee hearings and died in the second one. The critical piece for Taos County is the related failure to locally fund startup small businesses in solar installation, home improvement, forest management and a diverse, far reaching number of local initiatives. Failure to enact this legislation further exacerbates the ongoing crisis of a non-diversified State economy reliant on fossil fuel extraction. Thanks to all who supported our efforts to implement this potential cornerstone for New Mexico economic development.
