Gov. Orders Plans for Capital Projects

........................................................................................................................................................................................

SANTA FE (AP) — Gov. Susana Martinez is continuing her push to overhaul how New Mexico handles capital improvements and is ordering state agencies to develop five-year master plans for setting priorities for the financing of projects.

Martinez has issued an executive order requiring the new planning process for capital improvements by agencies under the governor’s control.

The governor vetoed nearly $23 million worth of capital improvements earlier this year and she complained the Legislature had taken a “grab bag approach” by spending taxpayer money on capital projects that hadn’t been thoroughly vetted.

Martinez said Wednesday that a master list of projects will help “identify the state’s needs so we can avoid wasteful spending.” The capital plans will be updated yearly and submitted to the Legislature as well as the governor.
