363 Redistricting, Build Back Better, No Natural Gas for You and more

On this week’s podcast conversation, Paul and Wally discuss the rise of Omicron and how it is driving concern and “lockdown” rhetoric in the Biden Administration and other large organizations. So far Gov. MLG has NOT embraced new policies in addition to her ongoing universal indoor mask mandate.

Wally and Paul share their thoughts on the apparent “death” of Build Back Better.

The special session of the Legislature has concluded in Santa Fe. What happened in terms of redistricting?  Also, has the medical malpractice situation been worked out?

New York bans natural gas hookups in ALL new construction. In New Mexico, the PRC denied PNM’s proposal to close the Four Corners plant. Why and what does it mean?

The Rio Grande Foundation has done some digging regarding Spaceport America’s (and more particularly Virgin Galactic’s) murky tax situation. It certainly appears that the company owes GRT to state and local governments.

Paul and Wally discuss ABQ City Council’s latest scheme to fleece local taxpayers, but it appears that (thankfully) the legislation will not be voted on until the new Council is seated.

The Santa Fe New Mexican’s editorial board has a dire message for Albuquerque. Paul and Wally discuss.
