Senator Mark Moores Proposes Income Tax Exemption for Law Enforcement Officers
SANTA FE – Senate Republican Caucus Chair, Senator Mark Moores (District 21-Bernalillo), has introduced Senate Bill 184 to exempt all New Mexico law enforcement officers from the state income tax. Senator Moores issued the following statement regarding the bill:
“We have a once in a generation opportunity to change how this state treats our law enforcement officers before we chase every one of them across state lines. These brave men and women put their life on the line daily to defend our citizens and keep the peace. This bill is a long term effort to give us a competitive edge in retaining our current officers and recruiting new officers.”
Other states, including Arkansas and Kentucky, have considered similar measures.
