New Mexico pueblos and tribes remain mum on whether they want to start selling marijuana legally, a potentially lucrative source of revenues, even as a consulting firm tries to stoke up interest. Please share, and tell us what you think. Should the tribes take up this new business?
A consulting firm with offices in Santa Fe says it would help tribes license, regulate and tax marijuana production and sales on tribal land.

Santa Fe County commission votes to raise gross receipts taxes without a peep of protest.
The increase, which will add almost 13 cents to every $100 purchase, is intended to make up for revenue reductions due to the state phasing out payments intended to reimburse local governments for money they lost when New Mexico exempted groceries and medicine from the gross receipts tax in 2004.

State historian is really like a state detective in New Mexico http://ow.ly/KEhMr
If you walked into Rick Hendricks' office while he was pouring over ancient Spanish Colonial maps, land grants and legal documents, you might discover he’s living that ancient period in his head.

With one full day left in the 2015 legislative session, Republicans and Democrats have taken a beating as they've watched their signature bills fall one by one. So what will be accomplished as the session draws to a close on Saturday?
Republicans, in control of the House of Representatives for the first time since 1954, moved everything they wanted through their own chamber, only to see the Democrat-controlled Senate bury their high-profile proposals, and Democrats did no better with their signature bills.

As lawmakers bickered, millions of dollars of capital projects in Santa Fe and elsewhere languished. Here's a list of some of the items that lost out.
Many projects in the Santa Fe area won’t be funded this year as a result of the Legislature’s failure to come to an agreement last week over a $264 million capital projects bill.

New Mexico legislature 2015: nothing accomplished, and it was the other guy's fault http://ow.ly/KE76w
Republican Gov. Susana Martinez and House Majority Leader Nate Gentry blamed the Democrat-controlled Senate for the demise of a $264 million capital projects bill and other GOP legislation. In turn, House Minority Leader Brian Egolf called House Republicans “bomb-throwers-in-chief.”

Rule could mean oil companies would use less fresh water in drilling, saving it for farmers, but critics want more explanation, saying the bill was rushed through.
The rule allows companies to store drilling water in open pits and reuse it for drilling and hydraulic fracturing. But critics complain that before the rule was approved March 13, neither the industry nor the state clearly explained to the public its benefits and potential drawbacks,

If the lazy Senate, which barely showed up for work the whole session won't just pass this package of cuts approved by both sides, they should be removed from office.
