New Mexico to get a big boost in tourism recovery

Published on : Wednesday, February 17, 2021

New Mexico could soon be getting a big boost in terms of tourism recovery. This weekend, the House Commerce and Economic Development Committee collectively voted to pass House Bill 267.


The bill would provide $45 million to the state tourism department to help expand tourism businesses, to create a tourism event revitalization program, and to develop a pilot program for tourism industry career advancement. This would include job recovery assistance as well.


“From the beginning of the pandemic through the end of January, over 63,000 leisure and hospitality workers have filed for unemployment in New Mexico, which translates to $735 million in unemployment claims. These are our neighbors and our constituents and they deserve a strategic path forward,” said Jen Paul Shroer, Tourism Department Cabinet Secretary.


New Mexico tourism department estimates that the state has lost over $3.1 billion in visitor spending last year.
