HB178 (and its companion) SB431 would have provided an $85 million tax credit to the Desert Rock Coal Plant on the Navajo Nation. If built, the plant would offset all the gains made by New Mexico under the proposed clean energy agenda – dramatically increasing mercury and greenhouse gas emissions. A subsidy of this size should be used to incubate and foster New Mexico businesses and clean jobs, not a highly profitable multinational corporation.
HB178 died in the House, and SB431 died in the Senate.
