The Santa Fe New Mexican reports there is a sense within the industry that the changeover promised by the November election is to buoy the business of film and television work in New Mexico.

Gubernatorial hopefuls seeking to succeed term-limited Gov. Susana Martinez say some potentially consequential tweaks to the state's film and television tax incentive program could round out this increasingly prominent piece of the state economy.

Some candidates are proposing removing or raising the payout cap for productions some view as an impediment to future growth.
