New Mexico House Speaker Don Tripp Says Senate Democrats Sabotaged Capital Outlay Bill

GOP News:

ALBUQUERQUE – Speaker Don Tripp released the following statement this evening:

“I have been waiting for several days for Senate Democratic leadership to return my calls so that we could come to an agreement that would benefit the most New Mexicans. Time and again, however, our negotiations have been derailed by an obvious lack of sincerity by the Senate Democrats.

“It is very difficult to work with people who do not value their word, and their unwillingness to negotiate in good faith has cost New Mexico a capital outlay bill and a jobs package that passed the House unanimously as part of the budget agreement, and that would have helped 300,000 mostly elderly and low-income New Mexicans.”
