ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez says a legislative special session to help the state win a Tesla Motors facility is a possibility.
   
New Mexico is one of four states that Tesla's Fremont, Calif., assembly plant has identified as finalists for a battery factory. Others are Arizona, Nevada and Texas.
   
According to the Albuquerque Journal (http://bit.ly/1egfBnd ), Martinez says her office is evaluating whether a special session is necessary to complete a package of economic incentives being crafted to help make New Mexico more appealing to Tesla.
   
Martinez wouldn't discuss details of the negotiations with Tesla, but she said New Mexico is in the running for the project in part because of taxation changes that the state has made.
   
She made her comments Monday after she made a speech in Albuquerque.
