Gov. Martinez pocket vetoed NM’s Solar Tax Credit…again

Despite winning bipartisan support in the legislature for the second time, Gov. Martinez chose to pocket veto Senate Bill 79. Gov. Martinez’s veto of Senate Bill 79 shows that she is out of step with the values of New Mexicans. Gov. Martinez talks a lot about jobs, but when presented with an opportunity to support one of the fastest growing, job-creating industries in the state – she chose to put the private profits of campaign contributors in the oil and gas industry who see solar as a threat to their bottom line over clean air for our children to breathe. Call Gov. Martinez’ office at 505-476-2200 and tell her what you think about her veto.
