Friday, April 05, 2019
Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham has signed into law a new initiative to boost the marketing of New Mexico’s outdoor recreation industries and create a division in the Economic Development Department to grow outdoor businesses.
The Legislature has appropriated an initial $200,000 to launch the Outdoor Recreation Division as well an Outdoor Recreation Advisory Committee. The money will be used to hire a director who can move forward with a plan on ways to expand New Mexico’s outdoor economy.
