Tax Bill Statement

We anticipate the new tax bill will be signed into law today. Economists estimate this bill will increase our debt by $1.46 trillion over a decade, so the pressure on public health funding will be enormous (after factoring in the planned increases in defense spending and shrinking tax revenues). I have attached a statement on behalf of the Southwest Center for Health Innovation – the New Mexico Public Health Institute. We need to be very thoughtful in our work together as the sun begins to rise on 2018.
