    A PROPOSAL would give Americans potentially thousands of dollars of payments every year. It comes from Republican gubernatorial candidate Mark Ronchetti for New Mexico. 1Every New Mexican would be eligible regardless of the age The annual payments would be determined by a surplus of oil and gas revenue that the state collects. “New Mexicans deserve to benefit directly and regularly from oil and gas royalties, and choose for themselves how to spend and invest those funds,” Mr Ronchetti said in a statement. “This plan gives our families a direct stake in the industry, each and every year. It’s a far cry from an election-year gimmick of just a couple hundred dollars when oil and gas contributes more than $6 billion a year to our state coffers.”  Who would be eligible?  According to the details of the plan, every New Mexican resident would be eligible regardless of age.
