Legislative Affairs Update: February 9, 2010

We have a budget!

We have a budget. The NM House of Representatives spent all day and into the evening on Friday passing a budget and tax increases to fund that budget. In the educational budget there are no cuts to funding, and there was an appropriation to fully fund the increased cost of insurance for next year.  This is very important because the funding would help ensure that there are no increases in costs to employees. 

If you are interested in seeing the full budget, you can download the PDF from the Legislature website. 

We have heard from several employees who are very concerned about budget cuts and about salary cuts. We will continue to work hard to advocate to our legislators to not cut education and to not put into place mandatory salary cuts. So far we have been successful, but the Senate will be a challenge.  They will begin considering the budget in the next few days. 

The Hispanic Education Act is currently on its way to the floor of the House of Representatives.  APS fully supports this bill.  If you are interested in seeing the legislation that Rep. Rick Miera is sponsoring, please visit the Legislature website.
