A New Day at IPANM

Gas Tax Bill, Opposed by IPANM, Goes Down


ABQ Journal (Feb. 10, 2020) – Legislators on a key House committee rejected a proposal Monday that called for sharply increasing the gasoline tax as part of an effort to reduce pollution and improve New Mexico’s roads.
It would have been phased in over time, eventually pushing the gas tax from 17 cents a gallon to 47 cents.
Members of the House Appropriations and Finance Committee voted 14-1 to table the bill, a procedure that prevented it from advancing to the full House for consideration.
