ABSTRACT
The article reports that gross receipts tax is rising in Bernalillo County, New Mexico after it voted to boost the tax to help fund jail operations because Albuquerque reduced its financial support for the jail system and turned it over to county control. County commissioners are considering three more tax increases that would fund health care for the poor and finance arts and cultural programs.
