General Obligation bonds are the primary source of capital improvement funding for New Mexico’s higher education institutions. They come before voters every two years. The fact is, our colleges, universities and specialty schools need this funding to:
- Renovate and repair the equipment and facilities we have already invested in
- Keep up-to-date on technology to attract top students and faculty
- Provide safe, high-quality learning environments for students
- Maintain the resources and infrastructure needed to deliver quality on-line education
In 2012, 2014 and 2016, voters overwhelmingly supported these improvements. Then, just as now, investing in the future of higher education in New Mexico created jobs and did not increase property taxes.
