New Mexico Legislature Passes $330 Million COVID Relief Bill

November 25, 2020

SANTA FE, N.M. — The New Mexico Legislature has approved a $330 million economic relief package aimed at helping unemployed workers and businesses that have been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.

Passage came Tuesday night as lawmakers rushed to wrap up a one-day session that was called by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham.

If the Democratic governor signs the measure, the state could distribute $1,200 stimulus checks to people who are unemployed or who have run out of unemployment this year. Smaller payments will be distributed to residents who missed out on federal stimulus checks, including dependents and immigrants in the country without legal permission.

Most of the proposed spending will be made possible by federal relief funding previously assigned to New Mexico.
