Gov. says furloughs could start next month

Gov. Susana Martinez says her administration is preparing to order state employees to take unpaid days off as soon as next month to help save money as New Mexico faces a budget crisis.

And she plans to call the Legislature back into special session soon, she said, to work not only on next year’s budget but to fix this year’s.

It would be the third time lawmakers and the governor have made adjustments to this year’s budget, with the goal of sweeping unused cash into the general fund to pay state bills.

Without more budget changes, “furloughs will start next month,” Martinez, a Republican, told reporters after a speech in Albuquerque. “Parks and museums will start closing because there is no cash on hand to continue all of these systems operating through the end of June.”

1. Susana's political career is over and

she wants to hurt as many people as possible over the remainder of her term. She is mostly know for being petty, small minded and vindictive. We are fortunate however, that she has no interest at all in social issues.
