194 Fewer Restrictions Except for Gallup, Economic Recovery Council, Budgets, Data and Statistics in The Age of Coronavirus

May 5, 2020

Gov. Lujan Grisham has named
her Economic
Recovery Council.
 Paul and Wally have
a lot of thoughts
 about this Council, the lack of openness
in terms of their work, how to contact them, and what their role is
in terms of policy analysis/ideas. 

At least a few folks
(legislators) are
discussing the budget publicly.
 Paul and Wally discuss
what these legislative leaders are saying. 

MLG begins loosening restrictions
along the lines of our original
8 points
 (except in the Four Corners);

Gov. MLG shuts
down Gallup upon what authority? Turns out she
has EXTREMELY broad
power under New Mexico law. 


Grocery deliveries are taxed under NM’s Gross Receipts Tax
. The
issues behind it are complex, but it could cost you money if
you have groceries delivered.

Finally, Paul and Wally discuss
the importance
of (and misuse of) data in the Coronavirusepidemic
. The
situation shows how data are misused in public policy
discussions and how our education system fails to educate average
Americans in the use of basic data.
