Education > UNM-LA gets $500K from state

The University of New Mexico Los Alamos received some life saving support for its Emergency Medical Services program when voters went to the polls Nov. 4.
Voters across the state were able to do that by voting for the “Bond C” question, which allowed the state to release $140 million in general obligation bonds to help fund some apparently much needed capital improvement projects within the state’s network of special schools tribal schools, colleges and universities.
The question on the ballot was: “Shall the state be authorized to issue general obligation bonds in an amount not to exceed $140 million to make capital expenditures for certain higher education, special schools and tribal schools capital improvements and acquisitions and provide for a general property tax imposition and levy for the payment of principal of, interest on and expenses incurred in connection with the issuance of the bonds and the collection of the tax as permitted by law?”
The $140 million will be distributed among at least 20 educational institutions across the state. UNM-LA will be receiving a half million dollars of that funding, which will be used to renovate and design a space for its emergency services program.
UNM-LA CEO Wynn Goering made the announcement at a recent UNM-LA Advisory Board meeting.
