Governor Signs College Scholarship Program Fix - The Associated Press
Gov. Susana Martinez has signed a measure into law to shore up the finances of a college scholarship program that relies on lottery revenue.
The governor signed the bill Wednesday, which was the deadline for acting on measures passed by the Legislature.
The scholarship program will receive liquor tax money for two years starting in 2015. Until that happens, a newly enacted state budget provides extra money to keep the program solvent.
