House approves NM tax hike


February 27, 2019

New Mexico’s House late Friday adopted legislation that would reshape New Mexico’s tax system and raise about $356 million a year in new state revenue for public schools, government operations and roads.

The Albuquerque Journal reports the proposal would increase personal income taxes on some New Mexicans — especially high earners — and raise taxes on cigarettes and car sales.

It would also impose new taxes on some hospitals, online retailers and e-cigarettes.

• The Eastern New Mexico University Board of Regents has two new members: Curry County Manager Lance Pyle and ENMU student Joseph Gergel III. Both were appointed by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham.
