January 11, 2012 • State News

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Gov. Susana Martinez is asking the Legislature to provide more than $2 [auth] million to buy replacement vehicles for law enforcement officers.

The governor’s budget seeks $2 million for the Department of Public Safety for vehicles for state police and motor transportation officers, and $200,000 for replacement of vehicles for Game and Fish Department law enforcement officers.

Martinez said she’s recommending a continued moratorium on the purchase of new government vehicles, except to meet critical public safety or health needs.

The Legislature convenes next week for a 30-day session.

The governor’s budget also proposes a supplemental allocation of nearly $588,000 to cover fuel costs this year for the Department of Public Safety.
