PORTALES, N.M. (AP) - A student board decision to cut funding from the Eastern New Mexico University student newspaper is drawing criticism.

The Portales News-Tribune reports (http://goo.gl/lIK5ze) that the Student Fees Board on campus recently voted to provide zero under for the student newspaper, The Chase.

They presented their recommendations to ENMU President Steve Gamble and the university’s board of regents approved them last month.

Gamble says the student newspaper will still be funded, in the same amount as student fees provided a year ago. But those funds will come from the state instead of student fees.

But Chase Editor Emma Pennypacker, a first-semester graduate student, says the source of funding is the issue that has upset student media.
