U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich Speaks Out About Veterans

“Few sacrifices are as selfless as those our military service men and women make in defense of our country. The tradition of answering the call of duty runs deep in New Mexico’s history. One of the most important responsibilities as your U.S. Senator is to keep America’s promise to our Veterans. ” –  Senator Martin Heinrich 2021

I hope everyone is staying safe and warm during the snowstorms across the State! As legislation continues to heat up in Santa Fe, I want to make sure and update you on key legislation:

COVID-19 Relief Package – Last week, we voted a package of bills in the Senate that gives much needed relief to working families and small businesses including a SB 1, which I am a proud co-sponsor. SB 1, 2, and 3 will allow for tax credits to working families, immediate grants to businesses affected by the pandemic, and reduced gross receipts tax for certain restaurants. This was my top priority – to fight for New Mexicans who need it most.

“If we’re not there, we do not have a voice”
