Gov. Susana Martinez plans to sign a measure into law to lower taxes on corporations as an economic development incentive.
The governor's office said Martinez will sign the legislation on Thursday.
Key provisions will reduce the state's corporate income tax rate from 7.6 percent to 5.9 percent over five years, and provide a tax break to manufacturers that sell most of their goods and services outside of New Mexico.
Supporters say the tax changes can help New Mexico in recruiting businesses or encouraging them to expand, potentially bringing more jobs to the state.
