NM revenues weaken, more state budget cuts loom

-A A +A
By Barry Massey

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — New Mexico's revenues are lower than expected for the newly started fiscal year, and it will force a new round of budget cuts to trim spending by about 3 percent.

The Legislative Finance Committee received an updated financial forecast Wednesday, showing the state with a $200 million budget shortfall in the fiscal year that started this month.

Revenues are projected to be almost $160 million lower than what had been anticipated this year, and $32 million short in the fiscal year that ended in June.

A budget law requires Gov. Bill Richardson to cut spending across the board if revenues and reserve transfers won't cover spending.
