NAWBO's Public Policy committee has prepared several position statements with recommendations that will be discussed with legislators:
1. Regarding Workplace Issues and Employment Law
Recommendation: The NM Legislature enact legislation that pre-empts localities from enacting employment legislation that is above and beyond federal and state mandates.
2. Regarding Taxation
Recommendation: The NM Legislature continue the work to simplify the current gross receipts reporting mechanism to eliminate "pyramiding" and to create a more up-to-date method of taxation that replaces the current cobbled together system of gross receipts tax with exemptions and deductions.
3. Regarding In-State Spending
Recommendation: NAWBO-NM supports legislation that keeps more of New Mexico state contracted dollars in the state.
4. Regarding a New Strategy for Right to Work
Recommendation: Counties and municipalities in New Mexico follow the lead of Sandoval County and propose local right to work ordinances.
