263 Halfway Home? Looking ahead to 2021

On this week’s Tipping Point NM podcast Paul and Wally look forward to and make predictions about 2021.

Are we really just “halfway home” on COVID 19? If so, what does that mean?

The left suddenly agrees that the ETA needs fixing. We said this at the time, but Wally and Paul suspect the motivations of these legislators don’t involve defending ratepayers.

Churches face fines due to violations of Gov.’s orders. Paul attended Christmas Eve services and shares his thoughts.

Finally, Paul and Wally make their predictions for 2021:

First, with the Legislature meeting, what will happen on Pot legalization, mandatory paid sick leave, tax hikes, do they attack oil and gas directly? What about another minimum wage hike? Will reforms to Social Security or the GRT happen? Will the Legislature vote to tap the permanent fund and if so, will they simply spend more on ECE or will they do something more/better? Will the Legislature pass and will effective limits on the Gov’s power in an emergency be put in place?

Will kids be back in school in-person this spring? How about this fall?

Will Cliff’s Amusement Park and Hinkle Family Fun Center reopen? How about the Albuquerque Isotopes?

When will restaurants in Bernalillo County be allowed to open up?

Will Virgin Galactic launch from Spaceport America? How about the Rail Runner?

Who will win the Senate races in Georgia?
