On this week’s interview podcast Paul talks to New Mexico Rep. Larry Scott. Scott lives in Hobbs and represents Lea County in the Legislature. He is also in the oil and gas industry. In the first part of the show Paul and Larry discuss the 2020 New Mexico legislative session and what might happen in terms of both good and bad economic policies.
And, since Larry has a front row seat for the oil boom in the Permian Basin, Paul and Larry discuss the boom, it’s impact on the region, and its impact on New Mexico as a whole. Will the boom continue? Is the Legislature’s spending unsustainable? Where are things heading for the future of New Mexico’s most important industry?
