Paul Gessing: The Spaceport and RailRunner: When do we stop Digging?

Nov 20, 2013 Full story: Carlsbad Current-Argus

How long do you keep spending money on something before you quit and cut your losses? New Mexico's Legislature will soon face some difficult decisions as to how much taxpayer money to spend on two high profile, Richardson-era projects, the Rail Runner and the Spaceport.

Failure to Launch

Espanola, NM

I feel that the revenue being collected from Gross Receipts Tax in Sierra County for Spaceport America needs to be re-evaluated or voted on again. The landing strip and launches/ landings promised has turned out to be false. I remember that I read somewhere that Spaceport America would
be open for business (Virgin Galactic) and flying in 2011.

How long can NMSA continue to dangle a carrot in front of the taxpayers noses and continue to
get taxpayer funding from taxpayers?

Can anything be done by the public or our elected officials to suspend these taxes?
