Congressman Ben Ray Luján of New Mexico’s Third District drafted a letter to New Mexico’s national laboratories and military bases today urging them to contract more with New Mexico-headquartered businesses in order to encourage business opportunities in the state.
The letter was sent to Los Alamos National Laboratory. Similar letters were also sent to Sandia National Laboratory, Kirtland Air Force Base, Cannon Air Force Base, Holloman Air Force Base, and the Air Force Research Laboratory.
In a letter, Lujan wrote to LANL director Charles McMillan, stating, “the people and businesses of New Mexico have a long history of providing excellent service and products as they fulfill their federal contracts. Since the federal government has a very heavy presence within our state due to the number of national labs and military bases, these contracts are among the primary drivers of economic growth and job creation in New Mexico.
“Many New Mexican businesses, including minority, women, and veteran-owned businesses are poised and prepared to carry out contracts and enter into business relationships with the many federal entities who do business within our state, and I would like to encourage you and your team to consider the many benefits that New Mexico-headquartered businesses have to offer.
