School board OKs budget

School board OKs budget


By Las Cruces Bulletin In a split vote Tuesday, May 26, the Las Cruces school board passed a budget that includes furloughs, staff reductions and program cuts. School Board President Maria Flores, who broke the tie of yes and no votes on the board, said she only approved the budget to avoid the state coming in and taking over the district finances, which was a possibility if the board didn’t approve a budget. “I don’t want to lose any more local control,” Flores said. “I’ll vote yes on this budget, but I’m not a happy camper here.”
