From NM State Rep. D54 Jim Townsend


Hello Everyone,

A message from NM State Rep. Dist. 54 Jim Townsend.

“I’ve said this before, that in the New Mexico Legislature this year, “you just can’t make this stuff up”. Here is a little rundown of a few things the majority leadership is passing through the House.
1. A budget with a 4.7% increase, which is better than the last two years of 12% and 8% respectively.
2. Repealing the law that criminalized abortion. HB7
3. A Civil Rights Act $9MM/year HB4
4. Climate Solutions Act HB9 $20MM/year
5. Sustainable Building Tax Credit $2.1/year
6. Real Estate Transfer Tax $60MM/year. You pay when you sell your house.
7.Healthy Workplace Act. Exempts State Employees so they don’t have a fiscal impact but will cost New Mexico businesses more than $50MM/year
8. HB30 Farmers and Ranchers restrictions on leasing water rights.
9. Environmental Data Base $.5mm/year HB51
10. All Felons on Parole can Vote HB74
11. Approve Recreational Marijuana. Several Bill addressing.
12. Electric Generation Projects IRB. On one project alone is costs the State $40MM. More to come. corporate welfare and absolutely horrible public policy. New Mexicans subsidizing California power.
13. Raise Minimum wage. HB 110
14. Health Benefits for Non Citizens. HB112 ?$10MM/year.
15. Clean Electrification Act. HB137 $14mm/year
16. Public Banking Act $50MM/year
17. Tax Code Changes $52MM/year
I’m told all tax increases exceed $500,000,000 this year…….and it isn’t over yet.
This list goes on and on. There are a few good Bills that will better the lives of New Mexicans, however are children are still not attending school full time as everyone of our neighbors are. Our businesses are still restricted and our future is controlled by the Governor who is reluctant to follow any of our neighbors to freedom. Ill be glad when our Governor quits picking a new color and allows our State real freedom without her interference.”

From U.S. Rep. Yvette Herrell


Greetings Everyone,

 Many of you may have received the following message from our U.S. Representative for CD2, Yvette Herrell but for those who haven’t I am sharing her message here also. 
Here is Yvette’s message,
                                                                                                                                                                           

“We all knew the liberal trifecta of Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer would be bad.
But I didn’t think it would be THIS bad.
Last week, they rammed through a $1.9 TRILLION spending bill disguised as “COVID relief”. The truth? Only 9% of that money will go to actually fighting the virus!
The rest of your money goes to liberal wishlist items like:
Over $100 million for a subway near Nancy Pelosi’s California district
Over $200 BILLION to bail out state and local governments in states run by Democrats
 $50 million for Planned Parenthood
Over $100 million each for the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities
As if that wasn’t bad enough, Pelosi also passed the so-called “Equality Act,” which in reality erases women’s rights, opens the door to biological males competing in girl’s sports, and 

promotes taxpayer-funded abortion while forcing medical professionals to perform abortions against their will.

And now this week Pelosi is pushing her national election takeover scheme, H.R. 1. This bill would wreck our election system by:
– Establishing government funding of political campaigns
– Allowing ballot harvesting nationwide
– Instituting permanent mail-in balloting
– Weakening voter ID protections
Tina, these disastrous bills show how CRITICAL it is for Republicans to take back the House in 2022. And that starts by defending our congressional seat against the false attacks the Democrats are already launching against me.
We can’t let the radical Left irrevocably damage the America we all love. 
God bless,
Yvette
