Watch All ABC-7 Newscasts Live Online Everyday of the Week on More New Mexico State University employees brace for budget cuts - KVIA

It's not an easy topic to talk about: budget cuts. And NMSU employees will be hit the most starting in the fall. As ABC-7 has reported, NMSU voted not to raise tuition for the upcoming school year. They're now forced to cut nearly $10.7 million from the budget. Possible cuts include: Reducing salaries for administrators who make over $100,000 a year, which University President Garrey Carruthers said Tuesday is a done deal. Some other cuts they're considering: Eliminating retiree health coverage for new employees starting in July. Eliminating sick leave payout for all employees, and getting rid of the employee health care center, which tends to nearly 3,000 employees a year.
