But state Sen. Stephen Fischmann said the number of jobs New Mexico will gain has been overblown and the state is overpaying to get them.

Its great that Sen. Tischmann is doing what is right.

... Guv Susana, how is this "state government subsidy" any different from the state government subsidy that former Governor Richardson gave to the Sierra County Spaceport that you were SOOOO OPPOSED TO since you took office back on January 1st ??? In your mind, is this "subsidy" a better one than the Spaceport just because YOU signed this "subsidy" into law yourself ??? Guv Susana, PLEASE GET YOUR PRIORITIES STRAIGHT !!!
WTF

Give them $8million to give jobs to El Paso?
Way to go, Martinez.
Lay off another 150 teachers or cops or firefighters. That should cover this give away.
Whatever happened to the anti-donation clause of our constitution? This is truly a give away and will gain NM nothing but more pollution and noise.
Well done, Martinez, more fiscal responsibility brought to you by the conservative party of the rethuglicans.
