NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – New Mexico’s Energy Department officials are proposing their budget to lawmakers Thursday. Officials say the $68 million budget balances the reality of the state’s current economic situation with the reality of the department’s obligations and goals.

The budget would fund programs like one that establishes a tax credit for solar energy development. It would also allow the department to expand online payment options and install self-pay kiosks at state parks.
