Bingaman announces PILT funding for NM counties, Hidalgo County to receive $681k for local projects Courtesy information U.S. Senator Jeff Bingaman today reported that New.Mexico counties will share more than $32 million this year in payment in lieu of taxes (PILT) funds. PILT, which is a program admin- istered through the Department of In- terior, compensates counties for fed- eral property such as military bases and national parks, which cannot be taxed by local governments. Because PILT was shortchanged each year in the annual appropriations process, Bingaman forcefully advo- cated for automatic full funding for the program - which many New Mexico counties rely heavily upon. In 2008. Bingaman played a key role in nego- tiations that guaranteed full funding through fiscal year 2012, while also improving a separate initiative called Secure Rural Schools. That effort re- sulted in millions of additional PILT dollars for New Mexico counties. "PILT is an extremely important revenue, source for nearly every county in our state, particularly in these diffi- cult economic times. This funding will help provide important services to New Mexico residents," Bingaman said.
