  • Legislators send budget to governor

    SANTA FE — The Legislature is sending Republican Gov. Susana Martinez a $5.4 billion state budget that will cut government spending by 2.7 percent next year.
    The measure cleared its final legislative hurdle late Wednesday when the House voted 36-32 to accept a Senate-passed version of the budget.
    The budget will cut spending on education and general government programs by about $152 million in the fiscal year that starts in July.
    Martinez has until early April to decide whether to sign or veto the bill or reject specific spending items.
