It's no big surprise, but New Mexico Film Division director Lisa Stout has been terminated by the new administration.

According to the new Economic Development Department spokeswoman Angela Heisel,

“We appreciate the former film director’s service but as requested by the governor, all exempt employees were asked to resign and she is no longer in the position. We are currently in the process of looking to fill the position of director for the New Mexico Film Office.”
The real question now is the fate of the state's film program -- the tax incentives, etc.
