Oil & Gas exempt?

$1.5 billion in state subsidies and tax breaks are doled out to other industries, yet the Governor’s cross hairs remain firmly fixed on New Mexico Film.

In the ongoing vilification of the Film Industry, opponents say, “the state can’t balance the budget if it doesn’t know what it’s going to be paying out to Hollywood.”

So while film is continually labeled as a drain on the state, big corporations pay less in state taxes than the truly oppressed New Mexican Small Business Owner, oil and gas are subsidised without scrutiny, and a little digging into special interest groups (i.e. campaign contributors), may yield some insight into what else gets special attention and consideration.

Ask the Governor, “WHY NO OIL & GAS CAP?”

Meanwhile here’s the KRQE report, featuring both sides of this ongoing saga that is, The State vs. Film:
