2016 General Obligation Bond “C”
for Higher Education

Voters of New Mexico will have the opportunity to vote on the 2016 GO Bond in November. UNM is especially poised to receive large amounts from the passage of the 2016 GO Bond. This is critical as capital money from the bonds is needed to complete infrastructure and buildings on UNM campuses statewide.

A vote for GO Bond “C” will provide jobs for New Mexicans.
A vote for GO Bond “C” will not increase property taxes.

The University of New Mexico stands to receive $34.5 million, spread across several sectors of the university which breaks down as follows:

  • UNM Los Alamos: $500,000
  • UNM Gallup: $1.5 million
  • UNM Taos: $4 million
  • UNM Valencia: $1.5 million

Bond C for Higher Education will provide opportunities for New Mexico’s students, create local jobs and provide communities around the state an economic boost, all without raising taxes.
