Among the new laws that took effect on July 1, 2022 was Gov. Lujan Grisham’s plan (adopted by the Legislature in 2022’s 30 day session) to make college tuition “free” to most college students in New Mexico through the use of general fund tax dollars.
Oddly, Gov. Lujan Grisham’s campaign began touting a student who benefited from “free” college to complete her nursing degree. The problem is that the ad was cut and aired before the new law even took effect and the idea that a student could have benefited from the program and become a nurse was impossible.
Fortunately, KOAT TV Channel 7 took a closer look at things and called “BS” on the Gov.’s phony ad. Check out the story below:
Vindicated!! I can’t believe the “higher education” secretary can lie so openly when confronted but poor thing, she has to. Here’s your rating for journalism in NM:
