March 18, 2016 – A new report caught our attention recently. Good Jobs First concluded that 70 percent of tax credits in New Mexico have gone to out of state companies instead of local business. The numbers in our state were similar to the findings in two other states in the report, “Slicing the Budget Pie for Big Business.”
But how might this information influence local discussions about economic development? Gene Grant leads a debate on that question this week with our Line opinion panelists.
