New Mexico Commission on the Status of Women

Let the cutting begin. Or, better yet, let the cutting continue. I’m all for this elimination of wasteful spending:

The state’s first elected female governor says the state should stop funding the New Mexico Commission on the Status of Women.

As part of her plan for covering a large projected shortfall in the state budget, Gov. Susana Martinez recommends eliminating state spending for the 37-year-old program.

In response, commission officials have launched a campaign to lobby legislators and the Governor’s Office to keep state money flowing.

In fact, I’ve given reasons before for eliminating this Commission. It’s nice to have a Governor willing to make sound fiscal decisions.
