Strong support for three state bonds

New Mexico voters turned out in support of the state’s general obligation bonds, with all three questions earning the support of at least 65% of voters, according to unofficial results.

The state’s colleges, universities, tribal and special schools have the most to gain. They are the beneficiaries of Bond C, the largest on this year’s ballot at $156.4 million.

Bond C, which 65% of voters approved, includes $30 million for a new 84,500-square-foot Nursing and Population Health building at the University of New Mexico, as well as $13.2 million for UNM campus Wi-Fi upgrades.

Elsewhere in the state, New Mexico State University would receive $18 million to improve its science and engineering facilities, while New Mexico Tech would have $10 million for Kelly Hall.

The New Mexico Higher Education Department would get $13 million to pay for infrastructure and site improvements at central New Mexico community college campuses.

Bond A, which passed with 68% approval,  includes $33.3 million for senior center projects around the state. Hillcrest Senior Center in Clovis would get the most money from the bond’s passage — $4.7 million. Within Bernalillo County, the bond includes $370,000 for the Isleta Pueblo elder center and $359,200 to upgrade the Highland senior center.

Bond B includes $9.8 million for library acquisitions statewide. About two-thirds of New Mexico voters (66%) voted in favor of it.
