UNM asking voters to OK $7M in bonds for new ROTC building

September 16, 2018

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The University of New Mexico is seeking $7 million in general obligation bonds for a new ROTC building.

Voters are asked every two years to approve general obligation bonds for projects around the state.

There are no tax increases associated with bonds, which are later paid back using state funds and revenue generated by the institution.

UNM currently is the only school in the state to host the Navy, Army and Air Force under its ROTC umbrella.

The Army’s current ROTC building is about 90 years old and too dangerous to work out of.

The Army ROTC’s senior enrollment officer at UNM tells Albuquerque TV station KOB that the current building is not compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act and it doesn’t give students the learning environment they deserve.
