Spaceport tax supporters declare victory

It appears that a spaceport tax referendum in Doña Ana County, New Mexico, has been approved. The Las Cruces Sun-News reports that the lead in “yes” votes now is greater than the number of remaining provisional ballots to be counted, meaning that the tax would pass even if all of the remaining ballots were against the measure. New Mexico governor Bill Richardson issued a brief statement in light of the news, saying that the “positive vote for the Spaceport Ballot Initiative means America’s New Frontier begins in southern New Mexico.”
