The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1zp3X6x) Gov. Susana Martinez touted this and other ways the state is seeking to boost its tourism industry at a Tuesday meeting with industry representatives.

Tourism officials say the total budget for the coming year is at $13.6 million, including the governor’s $1.25 million boost in advertising dollars. In total, the state will be able to spend $9.3 million on advertising to bring visitors to the state.
