  • LA federal workers won't be furloughed

    “Everyone is still hopeful that an agreement will be reached to avoid a shutdown,” a source familiar with NNSA’s and LANL’s contingency efforts said Thursday. “It’s prudent for everyone, including those at Los Alamos, to prepare for various scenarios. But LANL employees aren’t expected to be furloughed on Monday. There is funding available that would keep us operating for some time in the event of a government shutdown.”

  • New Mexico gov. signs budget as deadline looms

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Gov. Susana Martinez signed into law on Friday a package of financial measures, including a budget allocating $5.4 billion next year for public education and general government programs.

    The budget, as signed, will cut state spending by nearly 3 percent, or $156 million, in the fiscal year that starts July 1.

    The governor used her line-item veto powers to trim about $1.9 million from yearly operations of government and $2.6 million in one-time spending items. The governor's reductions included $100,000 that lawmakers had provided for a committee to handle redistricting.

    The maneuvering unfolded as President Barack Obama canceled a trip to Indianapolis and spoke in separate phone calls with Reid and Boehner.
