On the heels of Las Cruces Day in Santa Fe, during which almost 200 business people traveled north to advocate for probusiness issues important to southern New Mexico, the Greater Las Cruces Chamber of Commerce needs to keep the pressure on the state Legislature to make certain our voice is heard. All of our “asks” are designed to help the community move forward and to improve the quality of life in southern New Mexico.
What is interesting, in light of the lower available money due to the downturn in oil prices, is that our capital requests are less than in past years and a good number are legislative in nature.
I hope that bodes well for us. We have realized that everyone will need to give a little for the entire state to prosper. We just want to make sure that we get our share.
Please stay tuned as we send out progress reports on the 60-day session, and don’t be surprised if we ask for your support on a particular piece of legislation – or two – in which we could impact with additional support.
Your chamber is hard at work for you.
Bill Allen, President/CEO Greater Las Cruces Chamber of Commerce
