House Bill 307 would put architects, engineers and construction professionals and maybe a planner* together in a committee to recommend** capital outlay priorities for New Mexico. Think New Mexico thinks this is a good idea and I'm sure a lot of architects, engineers and construction professionals do too. Why wouldn't they given their livelihoods are at stake.
It would be like locking lobbyists in a room to duke out the contents of a bill. It just takes the legislators off the hook for having to decide the more powerful interests.
And forget it if you're not in that room.
* or someone who has worked in the area of "complex financing of commercial or public capital projects" because that's just like planning right?
** Contrary to some coverage, this group would not get to decide. Thank God.
