Protecting tax proceeds paid by LANL

NM continues to view the national labs as a local revenue stream "The misstep was a case of too much lawmaking and not enough common sense. With a 30-day legislative session set to start in January, both the governor and lawmakers need to get together on a simple stand-alone bill that will protect the GRT revenue stream from LANL or again leave the state’s fiscal future in the hands of Washington, D.C."

It would seem logical to expect property taxes in Los Alamos County might go way up if the county can no longer rely on GRT funding to help pay the bills. Los Alamos County has been spending a lot of money over the last decade on new buildings and new services. If the GRT is lost due to a non-profit winning the contract there may be a lot of financial pain for residents of Los Alamos.

how did LA county tax rates compare to Santa Fe, etc. from 1943 thru 2006?

Perhaps the county should adapt to live within its means instead of permanently continuing its spending binge on ugly buildings and repaving Central Ave. Politicians have forgotten, or don't care, that all the fat cash they love to buy votes with was paid for by LANS dumping hundreds of employees in order to pay the gross receipts tax and award fee. That money didn't fall from the sky. It was paid for by a loss of some of LANL's most experienced employees and the knowledge they had and the national security to which they contributed. That's all gone, replaced by a public spending addiction. It's time for LA County to go to rehab.

We really miss Steve Girrens and his wife Sharon Stover's leadership in Los Alamos. The city will never be the same.

Maybe Sandia would give him back. Why don't you ask them?

I heard Girrens is already complaining about how hard he's working at Sandia.

I'm also trying to figure out why Younger would select someone with no experience in any kind of weapons to be the Chief Engineer of nuclear weapons at Sandia. I do give Younger a lot of credit for taking Girrens "off our hands" at LANL; Sandia can keep him.
