• Who pays the most in state and local taxes in NM? A new study says it's the poorest New Mexicans, who pay more more than twice as much of their income as the top 1 percent.

• Looks like Guv Martinez won't get her way on corporate income tax cuts.

• Proposed constitutional amendments would change who selects regents at UNM and NMSU, reducing governor's goodies for political favors.

• With funds flowing out faster than they're coming in, Legislature weighs cuts in Lottery scholarships.

• Can't anybody find this guy? Bank robber wearing cap with American flag strikes again.

• Fugitive wanted in brazen Christmas Day gun theft from Los Lunas Wal-Mart captured in NY.

• Lobos get back to winning ways on the road at Wyoming. Next up: Nevada.

State law makers should have to take classes in general economics. If you tax corporations more than the neighboring states, guess what will happen? Corporations will go to the place of lowest taxation.

The tax study is interesting mainly because the tax laws that caused this were instituted during the Richardson administration. I believe he took office on 1/1/2003.
