There could soon be more money for New Mexico schools.
According to the Santa Fe New Mexcian, the House Education Committee passed House Bill 455, which appropriates $452 million in New Mexico public school funding in the upcoming fiscal year for at-risk students.
Some of the money would also go to small schools across New Mexico.
This comes as lawmakers are drafting an overall budget for the fiscal year 2020.
House Bill 455 will head to the House Appropriations and Finance Committee.
