We need a bill to create a special license plate that reflects support for extra-terrestrials.

Looks like many of the memorials (HM, HJM, SM, SJM) are pretty goofy too. The lunacy has just begun.

HB16, T Anderson
$50,000 to raise awareness of the submarine USS New Mexico - in NM. Really...
Why would taxpayers want to spend $50k for this? Its not about subs or their mission, its about one sub only.
HB78, M Garcia
$12,000 to create a community bicycle recycling program for underprivileged children in the South Valley.
A noble idea but why spend taxpayer money for it, can't those with a bike they no linger need give it to someone who does? Like at a flea market?
HB-90, P Bandy
A $20,000 study of the feasibility of locating a horse slaughter facility in new mexico to process horse meat for human consumption.
SB80, P Campos
$1,440,000 for the PED to give to charters and school districts so they can purchase NM grown veggies and fruits in school lunches.

Check out SB114, Legislative Retirement!!
Um....$20,000 for the study of the feasibility of locating....isn't that kind of the study of the study? Okay give me $5,0000 and I will give you the answer....a mall....many malls are struggling for business....and they can add a NM Fried Horse restaurant....

So we've been buying veggies and fruits from other places? Seriously?

Give me $8,000 dollars and I come up with some cool looking fliers and a blogsite to advertise USS New Mexico and continue writing a novel featuring the submarine....{requirement being that the novel gets published and eventually turned into a movie}....

Hmmm, for $6,000 dollars you can get a few community churches to start a swap meet to give aways bikes....and teach proper riding/traffic rules....
