LISTEN: Governor Susana Martinez Gives 2014 State Of The State Address
Governor Susana Martinez gave her 2014 State of the State address Tuesday at the state capitol in Santa Fe. She spoke before a joint session of the house and senate and touted the success of a tax package that was passed controversially at the very end of last year’s legislative session.
“Less than one year ago, in a display of tremendous bi-partisanship, we passed the most significant tax reform in a generation and sent the loudest message yet- that New Mexico is striving to be a business friendly state,” Martinez said.
The measure did things like cut corporate tax rates, while also requiring out-of-state corporations to pay income tax. Martinez challenged lawmakers to diversify New Mexico’s economy.
