    “Tax increases only reward reckless spending and make it tougher for small businesses to succeed and for families to make ends meet,” Turner said in  a news release.

    “New Mexico does not need another politician in the governor’s office who doesn’t understand that higher taxes hurt both small business and struggling families.”

    The cleanup of the six-acre waste site known as Material Disposal Area B (MDA-B) is moving again, although the major excavation is now planned for early summer.

    The trees had to be removed because they would be within the footprint of the containment buildings or tie-downs where the hazardous material removal will take place.
