SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Gov. Bill Richardson is allocating $1 million in federal economic stimulus money for the state police to buy new cars and fuel.
The governor said Monday the $1 million will help offset budget cuts, which otherwise would have forced the state police to limit how many miles officers could drive each month.
Richardson said $250,000 will be used to buy 11 new state police cars and $750,000 will go for fuel.
The state police is a part of the Department of Public Safety, which has a budget of about $93 million in state money in the fiscal year that starts July 1.
