Gubernatorial Candidates & 2019 Legislative Session
Even though the dust has just settled with the 2018 Legislative Session, NM Hospitality Association’s government affairs committee met this week to begin our plans for this year.  Having a strategic approach to interim session will provide an excellent opportunity for NM Hospitality Association to be preemptive of several undesirable pieces of legislation and provide an opportunity to start discussions around our priorities.

2018 Legislative Session Report

Posted by:Cody

This short 30-day, financially-focused session was about as busy as expected given the current political climate.  Though just under 700 bills were introduced, only a fraction actually passed. Though relatively quiet, this session was productive for the tourism and lodging industry because several important measures were passed while no negative pieces of legislation made it to the Governor’s desk.  Additionally, the 2018 Tourism Day in Santa Fe yielded positive visibility for the industry through successful advocacy and outreach by members.
