University chiefs urge funding restoration - Jessica Dyer, Albuquerque Journal

The presidents of New Mexico’s public universities are imploring Gov. Susana Martinez and lawmakers to restore their institutions’ funding, arguing that the financial insecurity could cost them students and faculty, and might also jeopardize their accreditation and hinder statewide economic development. A letter sent to Martinez and members of the Legislature and signed by the leaders at New Mexico’s seven public four-year universities expresses “deep concern” over the governor’s veto of all higher education funding for the fiscal year that starts July 1. It seeks reinstatement of no less than the $744.8 million approved by the Legislature – a sum eliminated by the governor in what has become a messy budget battle.
