Permanent funding for essential early childhood education clears last hurdle on way to senate floor   

SANTA FE, NM – Today, the Early Childhood Education and Care Department (ECECD) and the Lujan Grisham administration applaud the New Mexico State Senate Finance Committee for its decision to send House Joint Resolution 1 (HJR 1) to the Senate floor with a “do pass” recommendation. HJR 1, sponsored by Reps. Moe Maestas, Javier Martinez, Georgene Louis, and Liz Thomson, aims to increase the resources available for early childhood care and education programs—as well as K-12 programs—throughout New Mexico by sending a constitutional amendment to New Mexico voters that would earmark an additional 1.25% of the Land Grant Permanent Fund (LGPF) each year for such a purpose.
