WASHINGTON (KRQE) – New Mexico lawmakers are meeting with the president to talk about growing New Mexico’s economy.

House Republican Floor Leader Jim Townsend of Artesia was part of a roundtable discussion at the White House on Monday to discuss how federal and state governments can help streamline the process for businesses, especially those in the field of energy development.
