Marc Saavedra, director of the UNM Office of Government and Community Relations, said tuition increases would be covered by the Lottery scholarship. But, only about 20 percent of students on main campus have the scholarship, he said.
UNM is not supporting the Legislative Finance Committee's recommendations, Saavedra said. UNM is firmly against salary reductions and tuition increases, he said.
"We're saying, 'If you need that money, don't do it to the tuition. It's a tax on the students,'" Saavedra said. "We're also being realistic. We are still in a decline, so there are going to be cuts."
The Department of Finance Administration - the Governor's sector of analysts who also prepare a budget proposal - did not outline any further cuts for UNM, he said. However, Saavedra said the DFA could find itself adding a 3 percent cut to UNM's budget as the session progresses. UNM supports the DFA's recommendation, because it allows UNM to decide where budget cuts will be made.
"UNM right now supports the DFA recommendation because it doesn't support reduction in salaries," he said. "They're looking at a 3 percent cut that they'll implement during the session and they'll give us full flexibility to implement that. That's the recommendation that we like."
The LFC is recommending a 4.1 percent total cut to UNM, Saavedra said, plus tuition increase and salary decrease. The administration would use input from the Regents, President Schmidly, Provost's Office, ASUNM, GPSA, Faculty Senate and Staff Council to decide where budget cuts are made after the legislative session, he said, as long as the legislature doesn't mandate where specific cuts must be made.
