    How about an across the board cut in the gross receipts tax and state income tax? Offering a new business a chance at a tax cut if everything works out is a gamble for the new business. It does nothing to help a start up succeed and does nothing for those who have an existing business.
    I guess it is just too bad that there is is no waste, fraud or abuse in New Mexico which could make up the difference.

    Jobs that help protect water. Design/construction jobs that prevent sprawl. Jobs replacing dead trees. Not all jobs programs are created equal.
