Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham, D-N.M., told Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce members Thursday she’s “cautiously optimistic” that corporate tax cuts approved by the Legislature and Gov. Susana Martinez will produce jobs.

“I was really happy to see the tax-works bill in the Legislature,” Lujan Grisham said.

She said she is aware of fears in some quarters that the legislation benefits corporations while further burdening taxpayers, but explained, “I can be cautiously optimistic.”

“As a jobs-investment package, we should be doing everything we can to invest in growing the economy,” the first-term congresswoman from Albuquerque said.

“It was bipartisan,” she added. “Congratulations for that effort.”
