023 Spending $1.2 billion, NM’s Freedom Ranking and BBB

Dowd and Paul discuss New Mexico’s $1.2 billion surplus and what should be done with the largess. That shifts into a conversation about the Cato Institute’s Freedom In the 50 States report which gave New Mexico high marks on personal freedom, but found the State sorely lacking in fiscal restraint and the size of its government bureaucracy.    Dowd shared some “exciting” information about recent activity at the New Mexico Spaceport and both of them addressed the recent infusion of federal dollars for several wasteful New Mexico transit projects. Finally, the Trump Administration has announced that NAFTA has been “renegotiated.” What does that mean? Lastly, Dowd highlights some Bureaucrats Behaving Badly.
