2006 SB 242 Department of Transportation Expenditures Cap
SB242 caps public transit spending by the Department of Transportation at $50,000 per year, unless the funds are eligible for federal reimbursement. New Mexico already spends less than almost any other state government on public transit, and yet we have one of the better-subsidized road systems. Such an extreme cap hinders the ability of NM to pursue sustainable public transit systems.
Passed in the Senate, but defeated in the House.
