February 19, 2021 – Two state lawmakers talk about a pair of tax reform bills that clean up New Mexico’s convoluted revenue code and prepare it for much-needed tax reform. Rio Rancho Republican Rep. Jason Harper has been after a broad rewrite for years and calls the legislation an important step in that direction. He’s found Democratic partners on the House Taxation and Revenue Committee in Chairman Javier Martinez and Rep. Christine Chandler of Los Alamos. Both measures passed the House unanimously, as the state looks to create a more predictable and more equitable tax code.
