The Weekly Word podcast is back after celebrating a brief Easter and Passover break! This week, SFR's Justin Horwath discusses the forming of a new political nonprofit aimed at helping Democrats, which would be fine if it wasn't formed as a 501(c)4, which by law can't support partisan causes.
Horwath, who wrote about the nonprofit New Mexico Prosperity for this week's SFR, discusses the developments with hosts Matthew Reichbach and Joey Peters.
We also delve into how combined reporting—a measure that passed as a part the controversial tax omnibus bill at the end of the 2013 Legislative session—may actually disappointment its longtime proponents. That's because the measure, which is supposed to force big corporations like WalMart pay in-state taxes in New Mexico, got extremely watered-down before passing the Legislature this year. Reichbach recently wrote a story for Albuquerque Business First about it.
We also briefly delve into the Albuquerque mayoral election and candidate Pete Dinelli's recent qualifications for public campaign financing.
