Political science students respond to Governor's veto of higher education budget - Celia Raney, Daily Lobo

After Governor Susana Martinez vetoed all state funding for higher education in a messy budget battle, UNM students are left wondering what will happen to their beloved University. For the 2017 fiscal year, UNM received an estimated $2.85 billion, but after Martinez vetoed the Higher Education Budget for FY 2018 proposed by the Legislature, the University is left in the dark. As an action to protest legislative tax increases and spending, something the Republican governor pledged would not happen during her tenure, she vetoed a $6.1 billion spending bill for the next fiscal year. In her veto message, Martinez also complained that the Senate had not scheduled a hearing for two nominations she made to the UNM Board of Regents. http://www.dailylobo.com/article/2017/04/polysci-gov-veto-reaction
