GO BOND C FOR HIGHER EDUCATION
General Obligation Bond C contains funding for higher education renovations that were approved by the state legislature in Senate Bill 53. If approved by voters, GOB C would provide $25.1 million for NMSU campuses statewide.
In Las Cruces, $19.2 million would go to the much-needed renovation of Jett Hall, Jett Annex and Rentfrow Hall, all of which were built in the 1950s and are in need of upgrades.
There is no tax increase associated with GO Bond C. For more information visit our website on Bond C: http://gobond.nmsu.edu/
