PNM financier got that $55m
Posted: Saturday, October 21, 2023

Mark: PNM financier got that $55m
"Look at what we read today, $55 million in rent, some financier of the PNM going with that, but property tax for the poor, only $3 increase in minimum wage, four-per cent increase for public officers, police, army, teachers, fire and prison officers, and a 15-to-64-per cent increase in electricity rates."

Contributing to the budget ­debate, Mark said the Minister of Finance, in piloting the budget in the Senate yesterday, made no mention of the electricity rate and its negative impact on households, the commercial sector, and on ­industry.
