    SANTA FE. (AP) — Cities, counties and other local governments could find it harder to get low-cost loans from the New Mexico Finance Authority during the next several months because of fallout from a scandal over a fake audit of the agency’s finances.
    The authority’s governing board reviewed a proposal Thursday for limiting a loan program that finances projects such as sewers, roads and other infrastructure in communities.
    The authority can only make loans using $37 million in cash reserves because it’s unable to issue new bonds without a final audit or tap into a $50 million line of credit previously arranged with a bank. Bonds are the primary way the authority finances projects and has money to lend.
