When lawmakers convene for their legislative session in January of 2017, they will likely be looking at ways to reform the state’s tax system—particularly its gross receipts tax. One proposal that will likely come up seeks to reinstate the GRT on food purchases. This presentation looks at how that would impact the health of New Mexico’s already-food-insecure families. Presented at the NM Public Health Association’s Health Policy Legislative Forum.
