Think New Mexico: Fight the Food Tax!

The Legislature approved $230 million in tax increases. Among them: A partial food tax. The bill has been sent to Gov. Bill Richardson for signature. Think New Mexico is asking people to tell the guv to veto the food tax portion of the measure.

Please join us by e-mailing Governor Richardson or calling his office at (505) 476-2200 and asking him to veto the food tax. Remind him that there are far more sensible alternatives to addressing the budget deficit than reimposing the food tax. If he does not veto it, New Mexico families living paycheck to paycheck will again begin paying tax on their groceries starting July 1, 2010.
