Some of New Mexico’s head start programs will be saved despite federal budget cuts. More than 57,000 children nationwide would have been cut from head start this fall because of budget cuts.

Senator Tom Udall says he’s helped $5.5 million dollars for the programs in Valencia, Socorro, Cibola, and Mckinley counties. It’s unclear yet what help if any head start programs in other parts of the state will get.

Voters in Rio Rancho have voted against a proposal which would have slashed that city’s high education tax in half. Unofficial results from last night’s election show 40% voted for it… 60 against it. The tax supports the UNM west campus.  A city councilor claims he would have put funds toward’s police and fire departments if the proposal had passed.  About ten-percent of registered voters showed up to the polls.
