At least some pressure to make political contributions and the notion that money can buy special access to state politicians are widely held perceptions among New Mexico business leaders, according to a poll released today.
The poll also showed that the ethical behavior of elected state officials over the past 20 years is a _somewhat serious_ or _very serious_ issue for four out of five business leaders surveyed. The poll was commissioned by the Washington, D.C.-based Committee for Economic Development and conducted by Research & Polling Inc. of Albuquerque.
