State in Jeopardy of Losing Millions in Federal Special Education Funds

For immediate release

Contact: Arnold Vigil, (505) 986-4263

 

STATE IN JEOPARDY OF LOSING TENS OF MILLIONS

IN FEDERAL SPECIAL EDUCATION MONEY

 

Legislators were only recently made aware of a looming possibility that the state stands to lose at least $43 million in federal funds, and potentially more than $100 million, designated for special education programs.

The Joint House and Senate Public Education Committees officially learned yesterday, January 28, 2013, that the state Public Education Department requested a waiver from the maintenance of effort requirements under the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) from the U.S. Department of Education in August 2012. The state receives about $97 million a year for the programs as long as it funds Special Education at the same levels as in years past.

While the state has been forced to reduce statewide funding every year since fiscal year 2009 due to the economic downturn, Public School spending, including funding to special education, suffered budgetary cuts at a lower percentage rate than other programs. Although officials at the state Public Education Department knew about the need for a waiver since they requested it on August 17, they did not make members of the Legislative Finance Committee or Legislative Education Study Committee aware of a possible funding loss during a budgetary planning meeting in early December 2012.

Only recently were Legislators made aware of the possible loss of federal funds when a $20 million special appropriation was requested to offset the possible loss of federal dollars. The state is currently requesting more time until February 1, 2013, to provide the US Department of Education with additional statewide Special-Education information to support the waiver request.

“Obviously, this sets us back in planning for the Public Education budget,” says Senator John Sapien (Bernalillo, Sandoval, District 9, chairman of the Senate Education Committee. “Without knowing in advance how much federal money we are in jeopardy of losing, it makes it quite difficult to plan an effective budget to cover the loss.

“Even now, we are not getting the proper details we need to make an informed decision.”

Other legislators are very concerned about the loss of dollars, but they see the possible loss in more humanistic terms.

“It saddens me that a lack of communication has put us in this situation,” said Senator Howie Morales (Catron, Grant, Socorro, District 28). “Our most vulnerable children are at risk with this situation. We need to keep these programs at current levels.”

Senate Majority Floor Leader Senator Michael S. Sanchez (Valencia, Bernalillo, District 29) said he is disappointed that the executive agency did not do a better job of communicating this predicament. “The administration has made many overtures of transparency to the public, yet very few people outside of this administration knew that this waiver was in the works or that the funding was in jeopardy.”

Bill Requires Developers Give Mobile Home Residents 2-year Notice

For immediate release

BILL WOULD REQUIRE TWO-YEAR NOTICE

TO EVACUATED MOBILE-HOME RESIDENTS

Developers planning to change the primary use of a mobile home park would be required to give a 24-month notice to residents of the community before they are forced to vacate the premises and find new a new residence, according to legislation introduced by State Senator Bill O’Neill (Bernalillo, District 13).

“This bill acknowledges that many of these mobile home communities are in fact neighborhoods, that in some cases go back decades, said Senator O’Neill. “It is not an easy thing to find a new place to live.”

Patterned after a City of Albuquerque ordinance sponsored by former City Councilor Debbie O’Malley, Senate Bill 125 is designed to protect the integrity of community as well as the threat of possible homelessness.

“Seventeen percent of New Mexico families live in manufactured housing, which is second only to South Carolina in that regard,” Senator O’Neill adds. “This is both an urban and rural issue.”

Senate Bill 125 is scheduled to be heard by the Senate Public Affairs Committee on Thursday afternoon.

SENATOR PETER WIRTH TO APPEAR ON “REPORT FROM SANTA FE”

Senator Peter Wirth, Santa Fe, District 25, the new Chairman of the Senate Conservation Committee, will be one of this week’s guests on “REPORT FROM SANTA FE.” Wirth and Representative Nate Gentry (R-Bernalillo), the Minority Whip of the House, will discuss bipartisanship and the changes of leadership in both chambers.

Among the legislation introduced and to be discussed by Senator Wirth are SB 13, which closes a tax loophole so that out-of-state corporations pay their fair share of taxes; SB 15 a transparency bill demanding disclosure of corporate campaign donors, and SB 18 the GMO food labeling proposal.

“When you have a New Mexico store like Baillo’s next door to a big box, they should pay the same tax,” said Senator Wirth. “The governor has now made corporate tax reform part of her agenda and she wants to lower the rate and change the formula that we use, so I am encouraged that we can have a true bi-partisan discussion and broaden the tax base.

“When everyone pays their fair share and it broadens the base, guess what? You can lower the rates.”

The segment is hosted by veteran journalist and interviewer, Lorene Mills (www.reportfromsantafe.com).

Here are the times the show will air all around New Mexico on public television and radio this weekend:

Saturday night, January 26, 6 p.m. for the entire east side of the state, on Channel 3, KENW-TV, the PBS station in Portales. In addition, statewide DirecTV and the Dish Network will air the program on Channel 3 at this time.

Sunday morning, January 27, 6 a.m. for Las Cruces and the Southern part of the State, on KRWG-TV, the PBS station in Las Cruces, Channel 22.

Sunday morning, January 27, 8 a.m. for Albuquerque and Santa Fe and all of northern New Mexico, on Channel 5, KNME-TV, the PBS station in Albuquerque.

Those are the TV times statewide. In addition, the interview will also air on the radio at 9:30 a.m. on Monday, January 28, on KANW-FM, 89.1. It will also post online from www.reportfromsantafe.com about a week after it airs.
