Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signed a sweeping tax bill into law Tuesday, promising the legislation would provide financial relief to a “wide swath” of New Mexicans — including grandparents who are raising some of the state’s youngest residents.

The governor and legislators who attended the bill signing said New Mexicans should expect more tax reform in the future.

Among the most touted cuts in the omnibus tax package passed during the 30-day legislative session that ended in February is a provision that exempts Social Security benefits from taxation for low- and middle-income seniors.
