Today is UNM Day at the legislature, which features campus exhibits filling the halls of history, performances in the house and senate chambers, memorials, proclamations, speeches, tours, and meet & greets.
The House and Senate are both scheduled to go back into session at 10:30 a.m.
On Tuesday afternoon, Senate Finance will hear higher education's budget requests, with House Appropriations and Finance following suit on Wednesday afternoon. At some time this coming week, the new revenue projections are also expected and these will inform what the finance committees can do with the state budget. With the current volatile oil market, the chance of significant new money is slim to none, and that just puts a damper on everyone's mood.
